Johnny Depp confirmed as Mad Hatter. DUH.

Interesting (and lame), isnt it.

Today, according to our friends over at, Johnny Depp has been confirmed to play Tim Burton's Mad Hatter in ALICE IN WONDERLAND!

The film is currently in pre-production after Burton inked a deal with Disney last November.

The film is due out in theaters March 5, 2010.

As a side note, and I have spoken to Derek about this already, I'm actually kind of getting sick of Johnny Depp. I never thought I would say it - and I don't think it's actually him, rather the roles he is choosing. I am sick of these quirky, dark, crazy, hat wearing weirdos that he seems to be obsessed with playing. I have no problem with someone having a favorite role to play (and he does to a good job at them for the most part), but seriously, again? Haven't we already seen this character a bunch of times? I get this weird feeling it will just be a fusion of Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka, Hunter S. Thompson/Raoul Duke etc.
I also mentioned before to Derek that I really hope that he is not offered the role of The Riddler in any version of Batman. Once again, it will be the same thing we have all seen before. Maybe it's just me, any thoughts?
