Moment of recursive movie – game – book adaptation zen

My NPR "Day to Day" colleague Nihar Patel says, "This is the weirdest adaptation…a movie adaptation of a video game based on a famous book. I can't wait to read the paperback novelization of the movie."

Former BUFFY star SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR has moved on from slaying vampires to becoming the Queen of Hearts in a new movie adaptation of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

The actress will star in ALICE, a big-screen adaptation of a video game based on LEWIS CARROLL's classic tales, according to the trade publication HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.

The popular electronic game, AMERICAN McGEE'S ALICE, has the famous fictional character returning to Wonderland as a troubled adult, seeking to confront her childhood fears and cope with her parents' tragic death.
