It looks like Tim Burton and Disney have finally discovered their Alice for the big-budget screen adaptation of Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland after a long search. They are in final talks with regular on HBO’s In Treatment and Australian actress Mia Wasikowska.

Linda Woolverton is writing the script for the film, which will be produced by Burton’s longtime contributor Richard Zanuck, former Disney chairman Joe Roth, and Jennifer and Suzanne Todd. The film will be overseen by Disney creative executive Jason Reed.

Principal photography on Alice in Wonderland is scheduled to begin in November. It will be filmed using performance-capture and live-action footage.

For those of you who live under a rock of some sort, the classic novel that centers around young Alice, who one sunny afternoon follows a White Rabbit, who disappears down a nearby rabbit hole. Quickly following him, she tumbles into the burrow - and enters the merry, topsy-turvy world of Wonderland, which is comprised of bizarre characters like The Mad Hatter, a cheshire cat, two twins named Tweedledee and Tweedledum, a smoking caterpillar, the Queen of Hearts, and her army of cards.
