A source close to the situation explained:
Johnny Depp is tired of being a mad bomber; he's going back to being a Mad Hatter!
After a couple big flops, the Lone Ranger star is going back to the well - or in this case, down the rabbit hole - for his next project.
Johnny is reportedly in final discussions with Disney to reprise his Alice In Wonderland role in an upcoming sequel.
Not a bad move considering the first one made a billion dollars worldwide!
Johnny's fave director Tim Burton has already been replaced by Muppets master James Bobin, but it seems the
cash draw of the character is too strong to resist.
Between this and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, it looks like the marriage of Depp and Disney is going to be around for a while.
Hey, When You Wish Upon A Star, why not make it Johnny Depp!
