Alan Rickman? Really?


This one can still be classified as rumor, but I hear that Alan Rickman (of Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves fame) is in talks to play the role of The Caterpillar in Burton's upcoming 3D Alice in Wonderland.

Since this is a 3D thing and there's probably going to be some motion capture involved, it'll be interesting to see how much of that technique they use and how much of the actors' real performances they keep. As far as my opinion goes, Rickman would be a fine Caterpillar. But then, so would Jack Black.

But Rickman has got that great British eloCUtion...Which I believe is the caterpillar's superpower.
