We're still hungry for Phantasmagoria, a retelling of Alice in Wonderland that comes from Marilyn Manson and hits theaters in 2008. The movie stars Lily Cole in her first big film role as Alice, and also features Tilda Swinton and Evan Rachel Wood, with filming slated to start right now and many, many fashion spreads to follow. But despite its early hype, this isn't the only Alice in Wonderland project headed to the movies, and another film has just been announced with a fashion connection and a fantasy bent: Hatter will begin filming in Spring '08, and it's (yes) a modern retelling of the Mad Hatter story from the Alice books. The movie stars Alan Cumming as a deranged fashion designer, and Rebecca Romijn as Alice, a determined fashion journalist out to expose the mad milliner as a fashion fraud. Romijn once hosted House of Style; meanwhile, Alan Cumming is the only actor besides Antonio Banderas to launch his own fragrance (simply called "Cumming," which is pretty brilliant). But maybe by 2008, when Phantasmagoria debuts, Lily will have her own scent too.
