Burton To Direct/Produce Alice In Wonderland Adaptation  
From a Sci Fi Wire report:
Director Tim Burton, who will helm a new film adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland stories, said that he will stay true to the stories' essence.
"It's just such a classic, and the imagery is so surreal," Burton said in an interview while promoting his latest film, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. "I don't know; I've never seen a version where I feel like they got it all. It's a series of weird adventures, and to try to do it where it works as a movie will be interesting."...

Sounds promising....

Since the original really isn't "compelling as a full story," that will be quite a challenge.

OTOH, a movie that's supposed to be a series of visually interesting and entertaining scenes without much of a plot tying them together might be easy for Hollywood (just do what they usually do anyway)....
