Depp heading back to Wonderland?

Johnny Depp looks set to star in the follow-up to Alice In Wonderland.

The heartthrob actor is said to be in final talks about signing up for the sequel to the 2010 movie, reported Deadline.

He is expected to reprise the role of the Mad Hatter in the movie.

The news comes after it was revealed that the star's company Infinitum Nihil has signed a new "first look" deal at Disney.

Variety reported that the deal to develop film projects Johnny can produce at the studio was "quietly brokered several months ago".

Alice In Wonderland was a huge hit, taking more than a billion dollars worldwide. It also starred Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter.

The movie was directed by Tim Burton, but Deadline reported that James Bobin will be at the helm of the sequel.
