“Borat” star Sacha Baron Cohen is reportedly in negotiations to take on the role as the villain in the upcoming “Alice in Wonderland” sequel called “Through the Looking Glass”. Cohen will portray a character named Time, if he signs on for the project. The ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Sequel will see the return of Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska, with “The Muppets” helmer James Bobin tapped to direct the pic. “Through the Looking Glass” is set to be released on May 27, 2016.
Cohen recently dropped out of the Freddie Mercury biopic over creative differences. He is now attached to star in Louis Leterrier-directed action-comedy “Grimsby” and developing Paramount’s “The Lesbian” which he will star in and produce.
