The star of 'Sweeney Todd' reportedly is going to team up once again with director Tim Burton as he is said to be tapped to play Mad Hatter in 'Alice in Wonderland'.

Recent report regarding his future film project suggested that the 45-year-old is going to team up with Burton once again in "Alice in Wonderland".

In the upcoming adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, the Academy Award-nominated actor is said to be given the role of the erratic Mad Hatter. While most publications noted that the casting is still a rumor, especially with Disney have yet to confirm the report, MSN News Latin America via AICN has claimed that the star of "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy has become the second confirmed actor to work on the project.

If Depp is indeed tapped for the role, he will star alongside the earlier signed Australian actress Mia Wasikowska who has been tapped to play the titular character. It would be his seventh feature film with the renowned director following "Edward Scissorhands", "Ed Wood", "Sleepy Hollow", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Corpse Bride" and "Sweeney Todd".

Following the adventure of Alice in a magical world filled of peculiar and anthropomorphic characters, "Wonderland" is a 3-D movie from Walt Disney Pictures. The movie scripted by Linda Woolverton is set for March 5, 2010.
