Could you bump into Johnny Depp in Cornwall?

He has just signed up to a sequel of Alice in Wonderland.

He will play the Mad Hatter again, even though his friend Tim Burton will not be directing the follow up to the $1bn fantasy adventure.

Parts of the original were shot at Antony House near Torpoint.

It saw nineteen year old Alice returning to Wonderland by falling back down the rabbit hole.

It starred Mia Wasikowska - but it is not clear whether she will reprise the role.

Depp is already set to star as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Carribean series.

There is no confirmation that the Alice follow up will be filmed at Antony but assistant head gardener Mark Maunder said: "It was filmed here in 2008 and we've still get a lot of people interested. All the local businesses got money out of it - hotels and restaurants, so it broadened out into the community as well.

"From the house you can see right down to the river, all the views and plans hidden among the trees with lots to see and lots of surprises. It really is a magical place."
