S.M. Gellar and "Chainsaw" Director to Do New-Fangled "Alice"

by | June 21, 2005 | Comments

Based on the extremely well-received video game known as "American McGee’s Alice" comes an all-new silver screen adaptation. Sophomore director Marcus Nispel ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") will be directing "Alice," and his leading lady will be "Buffy" and "Grudge" gal Sarah Michelle Gellar.

THR describes the game’s plot like so: "Alice has grown up to become a disturbed young woman. After her parents are killed in a fire, Alice returns to Wonderland, a dark and threatening place of looking glasses, mysterious potions, nonsensical tea parties and talking animals, confronting her fears and the wicked Queen of Hearts."

Screenwriters Erich & Jon Hoeber will be adapting the Electronic Arts video game into screenplay form. Not very long ago, screenwriter John August and director Wes Craven were attached to the project, but that’s back when Dimension was involved in the property. But it’s all Uni’s game now, and Nispel & Gellar are the direction they’re going in.
