Sacha Baron Cohen in Talks to Join ALICE IN WONDERLAND Sequel

Sacha Baron Cohen has built his career on creating incredibly vibrant and kooky characters. After dropping out from the Freddie Mercury project, which he seemed like a perfect fit for, news of his next potential project has surfaced. Cohen may join Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska in the "Alice in Wonderland" sequel, which is now officially titled "Through the Looking Glass".

Cohen feels like a natural fit to join a fantasy film like this one. He has already played villainous roles as seen in "Les Miserables" and "Hugo" and his eccentric nature feels like a wonderful addition to the mystical world of Wonderland.

Tim Burton helmed the first picture and James Bobin, known for directing "The Muppets", is taking over for the sequel. The story fell a little flat but the visuals were fantastic. Bobin should hopefully help fill in the holes for the storyline but keep the cool tone and world that Burton created.

Would you like to see Cohen join the picture? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Through the Looking Glass" will hit AMC Theatres on May 27, 2016

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
