[San Diego Comic-Con ’12] TV: Sexy, Horror-Themed Return To ‘Wonderland’

Lionsgate TV has won a six-studio bidding war for TV rights to Zenescope’s “Wonderland” graphic novels, THR reports out of the San Diego Comic-Con.

The title, which ranks among the top 10 independent comics released in the past five years, is a modern retelling of Lewis Carroll’s 1865 novel “Alice in Wonderland” told from the point of view of Alice’s daughter. It’s based on the series of graphic novels — “Return to Wonderland,” “Escape From Wonderland” and “Beyond Wonderland” — created and written by Zenescope co-founders Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco and Raven Gregory.

Brian Robbins (“Smallville”), through his first-look deal with Lionsgate TV, will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Artist International’s Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell. A search is under way to find a writer to adapt the material, with Robbins envisioning an established actress to play Alice in the live-action effort and a newcomer to play her daughter.

I was really drawn to the visuals; they’re dark, intense and sexual in a really provocative way,” Robbins tells THR of the graphic novels, which Beggs sent to him. “I love that it’s a mother-daughter story; that’s what really drew me to it. In the same way that [Smallville’s] Clark [Tom Welling] had a similar relationship with his father, there’s a parallel here. It’s a really great retelling of the Wonderland story.
