Another Alice

Young actress Dakota Fanning may be starring in adaptations of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. She’s grinning widely in many of her publicity shots but she is capable of a certain intense, scowly seriousness that might work well for Alice. The scary news, though, is that the deal is with Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks.

Speaking of Alice, earlier in the week Bookninja linked to this site featuring various incarnations of Alice, as imagined by many, many illustrators. Check out the links page, too, if you want to get lost for a few hours.
