The Mad Hatter's Father Plays a Big Part in 'Alice in Wonderland 2'

11 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Though there's not much in the way of plot details, we now know of at least one new character that's set to feature prominently in "Alice in Wonderland 2": The Mad Hatter's father.

TheWrap reports that Mark Rylance, an acclaimed British theater actor, is in talks to take the part. The character's name is Zanik Hightopp, the father of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, and like his zany son, Hightopp "cannot hide his bright-colored hair beneath a top hat," according to TheWrap.

Rylance joins the returning Depp, as well as Helena Bonham Carter (the Red Queen) and Mia Wasikowska (Alice). Sacha Baron Cohen is set to play a villain named Time in the film.

In addition to a host of appearances in Shakespeare stage productions, Rylance is known for his selective film work, including parts in "The Other Boleyn Girl" and "Anonymous" and a role in the upcoming Sean Penn-starring "The Gunman. »

The Mad Hatter’s father cast in Alice in Wonderland sequel

10 April 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The sequel to Disney’s 2010 live action reboot of Lewis Carroll’s famous children’s novel Alice in Wonderland – tentatively entitled Through The Looking Glass – has quietly been trudging along into pre-production without much fanfare as yet.

Rylance’s previous big screen outings are few and far between but include the likes of The Other Boleyn Girl, Anonymous and Intimacy. Much of his acting career has been spent on stage including various stints at the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre , London.

Set to return is Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter with Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) the only previously announced new face due to appear as an unnamed villain. The movie is to be directed by »

Alice In Wonderland 2: Mark Rylance to be Johnny Depp's dad

9 April 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 10 Apr 2014 - 06:31

Mark Rylance goes where Keith Richards went before: he's set to play Johnny Depp's dad in a blockbuster sequel...

Director James Bobin is already hard at work preparing for the upcoming shoot of the sequel to Tim Burton's live action Alice In Wonderland movie. Entitled Through The Looking Glass, the new film will see Johnny Depp reprise the role of the Mad Hatter, with Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter also returning.

And we've now got a bit of new casting news for the film. Mark Rylance, an actor with no shortage of strong stage credits, is to play the father to Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter in the new movie. No further details have been forthcoming on the role apart from that, though.

More casting announcements are expected soon, although the film itself isn't due in cinemas until May 27th 2016.

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter Gets a Father in 'Alice in Wonderland 2'

9 April 2014 8:41 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though we don't know much about the Alice in Wonderland sequel developing at Disney, other than it will be called Through the Looking Glass and feature the return of Mia Wasikowska in the title role along with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, we might have a hint of what's to come with the latest casting reveal. Variety has word that stage actor Mark Rylance is currently in talks to play the father of Depp's looney, top hatted character. Of course, without any plot details, we're unsure just how integral the actor will be in the progression of the sequel's story. More below! Rylance is best known for theater work, but he can be seen in Roland Emmerich's Anonymous (a movie that I completely forgot about until this very moment) and the forthcoming thriller The Gunman with Sean Penn.

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter Gets a Dad in 'Alice in Wonderland 2'

9 April 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Rylance is in talks to play the father of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter character in Disney's sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, entitled Through the Looking Glass.

Plot and character details are being kept under wraps, but he joins a cast that also includes Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Sacha Baron Cohen as the unidentified villain. It isn't known how the Mad Hatter's father will figure into the story quite yet.

James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) is directing from a script by Linda Woolverton (Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent), with Disney hoping to get the sequel into production sometime this summer.

Although he is best known for his work on the stage, Mark Rylance's big-screen credits include The Other Boleyn Girl, Anonymous and the upcoming crime drama The Gunman, which hits theaters later this year.

Mark Rylance Heads Through The Looking Glass

9 April 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter are all already confirmed to return for Disney's sequel to Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland. Now the rest of the Through The Looking Glass cast is filling out, with word coming in that Mark Rylance will make an appearance. James Bobin (The Muppets) is the director this time, and Variety seem confident that Rylance will be playing the father of Depp's Mad Hatter. Rylance is, for the record, three years older than Depp, which is some sort of testament to Depp's skincare regime, we guess.Since no such character appears in Lewis Carroll's book, we can safely assume (if we weren't already) that Bobin's film will play as fast and loose with source as Burton's. The first film was a peculiar mash-up of elements from both Alice books and original sequel elements. Where Through The Looking Glass will take us is currently anyone's guess. »
