Tim Burton Picks Alice for His Wonderland

Australian teenager Mia Wasikowska will follow the white rabbit into director Tim Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Even wife/muse Helena Bonham Carter probably had to admit she was a little long in the tooth for this one.

Ms. Wasikowska is best known for her performance as a troubled young gymnast on HBO’s In Treatment, though her past experience is mostly limited to Australian projects. The film, which will begin shooting in November, will be a combination of live action and motion-capture animation, and will be released in digital 3-D, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
