Johnny Depp To Play A 3D Alice in Wonderland??

I have got to tip my hat to Johnny Depp - he is not afraid of ANY role. The Telegraph recently quoted him as saying:

If Depp has his way, he will soon be spending even more time with her (Helena Bonham Carter) husband. The 44-year-old actor says he would make a superb lead in Burton's forthcoming new version of Alice in Wonderland. "I'd like to have a go at it, if Tim lets me," he told me. "I could be the first male Alice. It would certainly give it a surreal edge."
You know what? That's not a bad idea dammit! Depp has played an eyeless gunslinger, a guy with scissors for hands, Willy Wonka, and a deranged singing barber and now why not a 3D Alice? He could more than likely pull it off and hey if Depp says he wants something, Tim Burton has GOT to follow him down that rabbit hole. So it could happen. Very interesting...

Alice In Wonderland is due to start shooting this May for Disney 3D and pegged for release in 2010.
