Tim Burton On Alice Movie Set

As with "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," his mission is to reclaim a children's classic and resharpen its edges.

"The story is obviously a classic with iconic images and ideas and thoughts," he said. "But with all the movie versions, well, I've just never seen one that really had any impact to me. It's always just a series of weird events. Every character is strange, and she's just kind of wandering through all of the encounters as just a sort of observer."

Austrailian actress Mia Wasikowska will be Burton's Alice in the 2010 release and Johnny Depp will play the Mad Hatter.
