It's been brewing for a while now, and this afternoon it has become a lot more real: "Alice In Wonderland 2" now has a 2016 release date, with plans to send you down the rabbit hole once again. Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska are returning to reprise their roles in the film, a followup to the 2010, billion dollar smash hit, which was the first post-"Avatar" 3D box office sensation (even though it was converted). No word yet on who will direct, but the project has original 'Alice' writer Linda Woolverton penning the script for the flick that will drop on May 27, 2016. Don't ask about plot details either, but we're sure they'll give plenty of opportunity for Depp to dress up. Speaking of which, with this announcement, it would appear that the already delayed "Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales"—originally set for a 2015 release—could be even further off at this point. »
