James Bobin in Talks to Direct Alice in Wonderland Sequel

By Brian Gallagher — May 30th, 2013

The Muppets director James Bobin is in negotiations to direct a sequel to Walt Disney Pictures' Alice in Wonderland.

We first reported on the sequel back in December, when Alice in Wonderland screenwriter Linda Woolverton signed on to write the script. No story details have been confirmed, but the working title is Into the Looking Glass.

Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd, and Jennifer Todd will produce the sequel for Disney, although it is not known when production may begin. 2010's Alice in Wonderland starred Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. The film earned more than $1 billion worldwide during its theatrical run.

James Bobin is currently directing The Muppets sequel The Muppets... Again! for Disney.
