Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks to chew some scenery for Alice in Wonderland 2.
The British comedian, who delivered lively, eccentric supporting turns in Les Miserables and Sweeney Todd, would play Time, the villain of the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 hit.
Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp will be back reprising their respective roles for Alice in Wonderland 2. The latter already starred with Sacha Baron Cohen in bloody musical Sweeney Todd which was also directed by Tim Burton.
Muppets-directed James Bobin is taking over directing reigns from Burton for the fantasy pic which now apparently is titled Through the Looking Glass.
Alice Through the Looking Glass will go down the rabbit hole May 26, 2016.
