Wes Craven's American McGee's Alice

Based on a book by Lewis Carroll

Cult horror director Wes Craven has confirmed that he is still working on the movie adaptation of America McGee's Alice, one of last year's weirder games. Apparently the film will be computer animated rather than live action, although Craven's comment that "everything we can take from the game we will steal" presumably refers to the storyline, characters and visual style rather than actual artwork and models. "It's a little darker, got a lot more edge, so it's kind of like Wonderland seen through the eyes of post-21st-century America", Craven told the Sci Fi Channel, having hopped out of his post-21st-century time machine. The movie is currently targeting a vague 2003 release, so it could be some time before we get to see whether this CGI effort will be a Toy Story style success or a Final Fantasy flop. Being a sceptical lot though, our money is on the latter. Related Feature - Disaster Movies

Yes, the game was a bit odd
