TELEVISION REVIEW: Syfy’s Alice Underwhelms!

Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a classic tale for two reasons – it functions as a cheerfully demented children’s story and it is also a genuinely wicked satire of politics and England’s nineteenth century society through the innocent Alice’s inability to understand the bizarre behavior of Wonderland’s inhabitants.

Alice [Sunday, Dec. 6 & Monday, Dec. 7, 9/8C], Syfy’s two-part miniseries, updates Carroll’s multi-levelled work to within an inch of its life by giving us a twenty-seven year old Alice [Caterina Scorsone, Crash] who finds her way into a greatly changed present day Wonderland where Bad Things are going on.

TELEVISION: Sci Fi Channel Casts Bates, Scorsone as ‘Alice’ Leads!

The Sci Fi Channel today announced the casting of the leads for its four-hour movie event that is scheduled for a December, 2009, premiere. This updating of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland will star Kathy Bates [Charlotte’s Web, Revolutionary road] as the Queen of Hearts and Caterina Scorsone [1-800-Missing, the upcoming Edge of Darkness – pictured] as Alice.

Scorsone

In this take on Carroll’s classic, Alice is a fiercely independent twenty-something who finds herself on the wrong side of a mirror. As the press release pits it, “She is a stranger in an outlandish city of twisted towers and casinos built out of playing cards, all under the rule of a deliciously devilish Queen who’s not very happy about Alice’s arrival.”

Rounding out the cast of the mini-series, which has just begun shooting in Vancouver, B.C., are: Tim Curry [Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Colour of Magic] as Dodo, Colm Meany [The Commitments, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine] as the King of Hearts, Matt Frewer [Watchmen, Eureka] as the White Knight, Philip Winchester [Crusoe] as Jack of Hearts, Andrew Lee Potts [Primeval] as Hatter, Alessandro Juliani [Battlestar Galactica], as 9 of Clubs, Timothy Webber [Men in Trees, Taken] as Carpenter, Alex Diakun [Sanctuary, The X-Files: I Want to Believe], Zak Santiago [Driven to Kill, Young Blades], and Eugene Lipinski [Animorphs, Intelligence] as Doctors Dee and Dum.

The writer/director is Nick Willing, director of Sci Fi’s Emmy-winning Tin Man. Executive Producers for Alice are: Matthew O’Connor and Lisa Richardson from Reunion Pictures, Jamie Brown from Studio Eight and RHI Entertainment’s Robert Halmi, Sr. and Robert Halmi, Jr.

It’s the adventure of Matt, a combat photojournalist, killed along with his fiancée by a suicide bomber, who awakens in a mysterious world where everyone who has ever previously lived on Earth, has been “reborn” along the banks of a seemingly endless river. Determined to locate his lost love Jessica, Matt joins forces, a 13th century female samurai warrior named Tomoe and American novelist Mark Twain. Together they sail upriver in search of its source, and to discover where they are and who put them there. Riverworld is produced by Reunion Pictures (Airdate 2010).

The classic comic book character The Phantom has been re-imagined and transported to present day in a live-action, four-hour movie from writers Dan Knauf (Carnivale) and Charles Knauf. A favorite costumed hero for more than six decades, The Phantom relies on his wits, physical strength and skill with weapons over superhuman powers. Production is slated to begin in April in Montreal with Director Paolo Barzman (The Last Templar) at the helm. The Phantom is produced by Muse Entertainment (Airdate 2010).

Alice is a modern-day reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel Alices Adventures in Wonderland. The four-hour movie event is written and directed by Nick Willing; director of SCI FI and RHI’s 2007 record-breaking, Emmy-nominated miniseries, Tin Man. Production on Alice is expected to begin in May in Vancouver. Alice is produced by Reunion Pictures (Airdate: Late 2009).

Pre-production and casting are under way.
