NEWS: Alan Rickman in Alice In Wonderland...

Hey guys! So, as many of you may have been following, Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland is shaping up to have one of the best casts for a film in a long time. That said, there are still a few parts they need to fill, and one of them has just been covered, allegedly. It looks as though Alan Rickman will take over the part of the Catepillar. Here's the info straight from the source over at Cinematical...

I keep thinking that the casting for the remake of Alice in Wonderland can't get any better. And then I came across the latest rumor coming from Zdonk: Alan Rickman -- the man who helped make Die Hard what it is, who once played a crotch-less angel, and who keeps a stern eye on Harry Potter -- has signed on to play the Caterpillar.

Take a look at the clip above and tell me you can't hear Rickman's voice speaking those lines! Between Rickman, Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Michael Sheen as the Cheshire Cat, and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, this is gearing up to be one heck of a well-cast feature. But there's more -- along with confirming Rickman, Christopher Lee Web says that Lee also has a role -- currently unspecified.

I'm beyond happy with the news, but weigh in below with your thoughts -- as well as any speculation on what role Lee will play!

Well, that's pretty much perfect casting if I do say so myself. What do you guys think?

The only other nugget of news comes to us from the happiest place on Earth, Disney. With the recent delays of a few big time Oscar bait films, it has been a long time question of Disney and Pixar would in fact push their amazing animated film, Wall-E, for Best Picture at the upcoming Academy Awards. Well, it looks as though they are going to do just that. Later in the week Disney will officially begin the campaign for Wall-E in the Best Picture Category. Only one other animated film has ever garnered the nomination, and that was Beauty And The Beast, and no animated films have won the category. It will still be able to be nominated for Best Animated Feature as well. What are your thoughts? Does it have a shot?

That's all I've got for now!

Go see something good!
