According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dakota Fanning could soon be slipping on Alice's shoes and heading off to Lewis Carroll's magical Wonderland.

The young actress is close to a deal to topline her own potential franchise in adaptations of Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, adapted by Les Bohem for DreamWorks.

Bohem came up with the idea to adapt Carroll's classic novels and immediately pitched it to Steven Spielberg with Fanning in mind to play Alice. The trio worked together on Spielberg's miniseries "Taken" for Sci Fi Channel. Spielberg created the series, which Bohem wrote and in which Fanning starred.
