Sarah Michelle Gellar - "Alice" Movie - Production begins & Release Date

Friday 30 November 2007, by Webmaster

American Mcgee’s ALICE, a video game released by Electronic Arts, may have been one of the best premises for a game in a really long time. Release in 2000, the game takes place after the events in ALICE IN WONDERLAND and the second adventure, THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, which finds Alice institutionalized because people think that she’s crazy. But then the White Rabbit comes back to her and asks her to save Wonderland from the crazed Red Queen.

Bad ass right? Well for the talk of a film has been passed around for years, with many people attached to it but like all good things in Hollywood, the idea slowly faded away...until now.

According to the Hollywood North Report, Universal Pictures is gearing up to make the film based on the game.

Universal Pictures and Collision Entertainment are prepping for the film Alice, based on the video game American Mcgee’s Alice.

The horror fantasy film will shoot in Langley, BC starring actress Sarah Michelle "Buffy" Gellar as ’Alice’.

Director is Marcus Nispel, from a script by Erich and Jon Hober, based on author Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass".

I can’t say that I’m thrilled about casting choice, and the directing choice for that matter. I feel like it’s going into a direction that may make it seem like a bad Renny Harlin film, rather than a good intellectual mind-f**k. Alice is set for a July 2008 release... If Nispel is directing, what does this mean for the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake? Who knows, but more about ALICE as it happens.
