    This is really cool casting. I think the video game version of Alice got stopped a long time ago. At one point Sarah Michelle Gellar was going to play Alice.

    Matt Lucas is a comic genius!!! Over the years he had bit parts in t.V shows, but his best had to be the big baby drummer who keep the scores on "shooting stars".

    But now he and Matt Walliams have had there own show for a number of years in the U.K called "Little Britain", it's f*cking hilarious!! They have just finished a season for the states on NBC i think. Think it started the other night.

    F*cking super funny sh*t!

    Sweet, this is coming along nicely. Cant wait to hear who they get for the Caterpillar. I think Tim Curry would make an amazing Cheshire Cat.

    Cool.

    I'm surprised that this is being made before Alice (The dark video game). Whatever happened to that project?
