“American McGee’s Alice and Alice: Madness Returns game series is a groundbreaking reimagining of the classic tale. It takes you into the heart of a corrupted Wonderland and throws light into shadowy corners the world has never seen. I am beyond excited to bring this world of madness and wonder to a global audience.”
McGee himself provided the following statement regarding his thoughts on this upcoming television adaption:
“David Hayter brings imagination, experience, and stealth sneaking skills gained through successful missions in film, TV, and video games – a unique combination sure to make this adventure into Wonderland a successful one for the franchise and the fans. I am excited to be working with him and know the Alice fans will welcome him with mad affection.”
Throughout this television series, Alice will be summoned back to Wonderland by the White Rabbit following a tragic fire that takes her residence and the lives of her parents. She becomes suicidal, resulting in a compulsory stay at a mental institution before the wiles of Wonderland consume her once again.
