Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter in a Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland. A photo reportedly of Johnny in costume and makeup has been leaked online. His hair stands out in curly coils from the side of his head and Depp’s face is white with red streaks on his cheeks and around eyes. Talented at playing nearly unrecognizable, eccentric characters, Depp will bring his unique take to the role.
Alice in Wonderland also stars Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Crispin Glover. It will be part Beowulf-type live action CGI and part live footage. Alice is due out in theaters in March, 2010 and given how far away the release date is this seems like a genuine photo leak and not an attempt to drum up publicity for the film.

Leaked Pic of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter
Looks pretty interesting. I always enjoyed this story when I was little and I'm a big fan of Tim Burton. Its going to be interesting to see what creative things Burton is going to do with the film. I cannot wait.
