Johnny Depp seems mighty mad about the Mad Hatter.
The actor is reportedly looking to reprise his scene-stealing role as the bug-eyed, finger-in-a-socket-haired screwball in a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Alice in Wonderland.
Per Deadline, the 50-year-old Depp is in "final discussions" to revisit author Lewis Carroll's fantastical world. But in an interesting development, the first film's director, frequent Depp collaborator Tim Burton, is reportedly not returning to helm this follow-up.
Instead, The Muppets filmmaker James Bobin is supposedly circling the job.
