Abandoned by her father as a child, Alice is accustomed to men being unpredictable, but Jack Chase is on a completely different level. Just moments after surprising her with a rare family ring, he's suddenly kidnapped by two thugs and expelled into the ether. Alice is then confronted by a sharply dressed stranger who answers to the name White Rabbit, and who promises to reveal all of Jack's secrets. Alice follows him through the enormous liquid glass of an ornate mirror and ends up in Wonderland, an outlandish underground city of twisted towers and parapets conceived of in a Dali-like dream.

Alice - Remake - Netflix
In 2007 director Dante Tomaselli announced his intent to direct a remake, confirmed that he had completed a script with Michael Gingold. Tomaselli will also score the film using original pieces and re-mastered and remixed musical compositions from the original film. In 2013 actress Kathryn Morris was confirmed to be performing in the film and will assume the role of Catherine Spages. The film will be set in the 1970s as opposed to setting it in modern times or in its original 1960s setting, as Tomaselli wanted to be “somewhat more recent while not at all losing its retro style”. In May 2016, Tomaselli revealed that the film had suffered delays due to lack of funds, but also stated that he had been in recent contact with “solid prospects from European production companies and producers.”
