Netflix has acquired the original feature pitch Alice, a contemporary re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland starring Sabrina Carpenter. Alice in Wonderland is one of the most beloved and iconic characters in classic literature.
Carpenter will also produce via her At Last Productions along with Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton.
Alice is a modern day musical set against the backdrop of a music festival called “Wonderland.” Ross Evans will pen the original screenplay.
Work It garnered fans across the globe and launched Carpenter’s hit single Let Me Move You, which she wrote alongside Steph Jones (Kelsea Ballerini, Pink, Selena Gomez) and Stargate (Sam Smith, Katy Perry, Khalid) and performed for the film.
Sabrina Carpenter has enchanted global audiences as a singer, songwriter, actress, designer, and style icon. She will next be seen starring in Justin Baldoni’s highly-anticipated teen drama Clouds, releasing October 16th on Disney+.
Carpenter’s recent credits span a wide array of diverse projects including Netflix’s groundbreaking Tall Girl, the 20th Century Fox hit The Hate U Give, and her award-winning film festival favorite The Short History of the Long Road.
She recently made her Broadway debut starring in Tina Fey’s hit Mean Girls.
Screenwriter Ross Evans is currently writing the feature adaptation of Monopoly for Tim Story and Kevin Hart at Lionsgate. His original musical Catch the Moon is set up with Dan Lin’s Rideback Pictures. Evans’ 2017 screenplay Gadabout was a Black List selection.
Alice is the first project Carpenter will produce under her At Last Productions banner.
Alloy Entertainment is a book to film and television production company that has created such global franchises as You, The 100, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
