Alan Cumming and Rebecca Romijn will star in "Hatter," written and directed by James Killough, about a hedonistic fashion designer and a journalist who knows the secret of his shady past.

The movie is scheduled to shoot next spring in Eastern Europe, with U.K.-based AV Pictures handling worldwide sales. Cumming is producing with Killough and AV topper Anghad Paul. Cumming and Romijn previously appeared together in "X2."

The project is described as a riff on the Mad Hatter's tea party scene from "Alice in Wonderland." It's Killough's debut as a feature director after his short "Losing Her."
