Tim Burton's remake (or 're-imagining') of the Alice in Wonderland story, starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, now has some names attached to the soundtrack.

Pete Wentz, Mark Hoppus, Avril Lavigne: three names just guaranteed to ooze quality from every pore. Our only regret is that is couldn't have involved Tom DeLonge instead of Hoppus.

So, Wentz - best known for his auto-erotic photography and his role as the front-man of Fall Out Boy despite not actually being the front-man - has joined forces with Blink-182's Mark Hoppus to record a song.

Wentz made a rare breach of his media silence to discuss the news, saying: "We did a song for 'Alice in Wonderland,' and we might do a few more, depending on when Mark [Hoppus] goes in with Blink. It sounds nothing like Blink or Fall Out Boy.

"Mark understands songwriting on a completely different level. It's awesome to have a chance to sit in a room with him and watch him work out a melody."

Lavigne, enjoying soaring popularity since she decided to ditch the punk-act and do the sexy-dwarf dance, will similarly contribute a song by the name of "Alice Underground" to the soundtrack.

The film goes on general release from March 5 in the U.K.
