I am a HUGE Tim Burton fan and cannot wait for this film. I am so excited that Michael will be involved. Filmshaft.com has a recent piece in which Michael dishes on his role in the newest version of Alice in Wonderland. The film is set to be released in March 2010.
Not content with plugging his role in the highly anticipated The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Michael Sheen has begun the build up to the big event that is Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in which Sheen plays the role of the white rabbit. Speaking to Parade, the Brit actor said:
“I’m doing the White Rabbit in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Everyone has an inner white fluffy animal, it’s just a question of finding it before it’s too late.”
“The White Rabbit is such an iconic character that I didn’t feel like I should break the mould too much, so I just sort of went with it.”
“The story had a huge impact on me as a child and it’s stayed with me ever since, so to be part of Tim Burton’s version is just like a dream come true.”
