Depp Is Burton’s Mad Hatter?

Johnny Depp is tipped to play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s new version of “Alice in Wonderland” for Disney Pictures reports Bang Media.

A re-imagining of the classic children’s tale by Lewis Carroll, the project would mark the seventh time Johnny and Tim have worked together and is scheduled for release in 2010.

The talk comes as Depp is said to be teaming up with director Terry Gilliam to finally make “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” – the troubled project the pair previously tried to work on in 2001 but it fell apart due to a variety of issues.
