James Bobin ("The Muppets") is in talks to direct a sequel to Tim Burton's 2010 take on the Lewis Carroll classic "Alice in Wonderland". The original earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office
Discussions are said to be in early stages, especially as Bobin is currently shooting "The Muppets … Again!" for the studio. Bobin will soon meet with producers Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd about the project.
The 2010 film's scribe Linda Woolverton is already set to pen the script for the sequel. It is unclear at this stage if either Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska will return.
