Sacha Baron Cohen going Through The Looking Glass

22 January 2014

Borat in Wonderland.

Sacha Baron Cohen has signed up to play an unnamed role in Disney's forthcoming Alice in Wonderland sequel Through The Looking Glass.

The original 2010 3D extravaganza, directed by Tim Burton, was one of the few films in the super exclusive club to have earned over a billion at the box office - only seventeen have managed the feat in history.

Disney are not the types to let such a plump cash cow go unmilked.

Details are still very sparse on the film, and there's no word on who the Borat and Ali G actor would play, although there's speculation he could be in a villainous role.

James Bobin, the Brit Flight of the Conchords director who successfully revived the Muppets for Disney, is taking the directing mantle from Burton. Johnny Depp has been confirmed to return as the Mad Hatter and Mia Wasikowska will again play Alice.

Through The Looking Glass is set to be released on May 27th, 2016.
