NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. cable television network Syfy says its contemporary re-imagined take on "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" will air over two nights in December.

The four-hour movie will be split into two parts set to air Dec. 6-7.

Based on Lewis Carroll's classic stories, "Alice" stars Kathy Bates as the Queen of Hearts and Caterina Scorsone as Alice.

Rounding out the cast are Tim Curry as Dodo, Colm Meaney as the King of Hearts, Philip Winchester as Jack Chase, Matt Frewer as the White Knight, Andrew Lee Potts as Hatter, Harry Dean Stanton as the Caterpillar, Alessandro Juliani as 9 of Clubs, Timothy Webber as Carpenter, Alex Diakun as Ratcatcher, Zak Santiago as 10 of Clubs and Eugene Lipinski as Doctors Dee and Dum.

"For this re-imagined adaptation, writer/director Nick Willing mines the bizarre ingenuity and twisted logic of Carroll's work to create a daringly different, boldly colorful and delightfully skewed dreamscape of his own," the network said in a media release. "Willing also directed the record-breaking, Emmy-winning miniseries 'Tin Man' for Syfy in 2007."
