Ex-vampire slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar has revealed she remains passionate about making a movie based on American McGee's quirky, cult platform adventure Alice.
"It's a passion project of mine," said the Buffy star, who owns the film rights to the game.
"It's a story that I'd love to see. I'm fearful at this rate that I'm going to be the wicked Queen of Hearts because I'm going to be too old to be Alice," she joked.
Not quite as adept at playing games as she is slaying the undead, Gellar revealed she's finished American McGee's Alice but "had a lot of help".
"We got the rights to it," she continued, "and Universal wound up getting really excited and put a lot of money into it, and then it's the usual story. There was a regime change."
But despite the road blocks, she refuses to admit defeat.
"It's still my project, and I'm still working diligently. So to all those Alice fans, I'm not giving up. Because I believe there is such a beautiful, crazy, cool, twisted story to be told there."
