Ha, I think this is the first topic I ever started. It really took off didn't it? I'm sticking with it, though I undershot the year of release.

Coming Soon: First Look at Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

Tim Burton to Direct Alice and Frankenweenie

November 16, 2007

Tim Burton is pairing up with Disney to direct two 3-D films, Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie. Variety says the two-movie deal with Walt Disney Studios begins with Alice in Wonderland, which will combine performance-capture imagery, currently seen in Beowulf, with live-action footage. The script by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast) is based on the Lewis Carroll classic. Burton, who is wrapping Sweeney Todd at Paramount and DreamWorks, will tackle Alice in Wonderland early next year, with production set to wrap by May.

After "Alice," Burton will helm and produce Frankenweenie, based on his 1984 short film about a pet dog brought back to life by his loyal owner. The movie will be shot in stop-motion animation and shown in digital 3-D.
