McG for Alice in Wonderland?
Hasn't Hollywood Learned Yet?
By Robert T. Trate

The CW is jumping down the same rabbit hole as everyone else it seems. They are in development with McG (Terminator Salvation) and Chad Hodge (Playboy Club) for a contemporary take on Lewis Carroll classic book. Since “Alice in Wonderland” is in the public domain it seems ripe for the picking. It is also a highly bankable property after Tim Burton’s take in 2010 (third highest grossing film in the world that year).
The premise places Alice as cop who has deal with a fantasy world that threatens are own. This alone sounds a lot like NBC’s Grimm and The Beauty and the Beast relaunch.
Mania will keep watching to see if this modern take on Carroll’s story actually comes to light.
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
