Tim Burton‘s blockbuster rendition of the fairytale Alice in Wonderland is arriving on DVD and Blu-rayJune 1st, 2010. In the second of a seven-part interview series, we caught up with the actors and the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the making of this billion dollar epic. Today we chat withAnne Hathaway, who played the White Queen in the film. Here is our conversation with her:
What did you make of the platinum blonde look and shimmering white gown you have in the film?
Anne Hathaway: I think the look of my character really fits into Tim Burton‘s canon, when you look at a lot of his heroines. A lot of them have pale hair and shadowed eyes and dark lips. I think this is the more extreme version of it. She is the White Queen so obviously the color of her hair is informed by that. What I was struck by when I saw the film was that the hair and make-up actually matched what I was trying to do with the character – which was to play her as someone who was good but with a tiny bit of darkness in her. I thought that came out in the lips and the nails. I was so happy that I did not recognize myself.
I’ve just added around 200 blu ray quality screencaptures of Anne in her role as the White Queen to the gallery. She was beautiful as always. Hope you enjoy them!
A-list Hollywood actresses including Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley are reportedly being considered for the lead role in the remake of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.
Oscar-nominated ‘An Education’ star Carey Mulligan, ‘Juno’ actress Ellen Page as well as Natalie Portman are also keen to take on the lead role in the new version of the film, reported Contactmusic.
The film is based on the novel by Swedish author Stiegg Larsson and even ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart is being considered as an option for the lead.
However, director David Fincher is unsure whether he wants to cast an established star or an unknown actress.
“David is not sure if he wants to go with an actress of any note or go with an unknown. David’s process is very specific and private. He’s looking for authenticity and a degree of fierceness and believability capable of delivering the intensity that the part on the page calls for,” said a source.
Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt is believed to have been offered the male lead in the film.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – a Swedish version of which was released in cinemas earlier this year – is the first in a trilogy, followed by The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.
