Gellar Becomes Alice
Variety reports that Marcus (TEXAS CHAINSAW remake) Nispel will direct and Sarah Michelle Gellar will star in ALICE, the film adaptation of American McGee's Electronic Arts video game. Originally developed at Dimension, the project is now at Universal, with Firm Films and Collision Entertainment producing. Erich and Jon Hoeber are scripting from McGee's scenario, a dark takeoff on Lewis Carroll's classic in which Alice is the only survivor of a catastrophe that destroys her home and kills her family. Traveling back to Wonderland, she finds it's now a scary place full of fearsome beings. Nispel also directed last year's modern-day FRANKENSTEIN telemovie for the USA Network, while Gellar recently wrapped a still-untitled supernatural thriller for Rogue Pictures.
