Sacha Baron Cohen, the man responsible for Borat and Bruno, has booked a trip to Wonderland.
Variety reports Baron Cohen is in early talks to join the cast of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland sequel, titled Through the Looking Glass. He’ll star as the film’s villain, although details on the character are unknown. Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska are expected to reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter and Alice in the film, helmed by The Muppets director James Bobbin.
Depp and Baron Cohen previously shared the screen in Tim Burton’s 2007 film Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
The Alice in Wonderland sequel hits theaters on May 27, 2016, more than six years after the release of the first film.
