‘Once Upon a Time’ Mad Hatter spin-off in the works as Official Magazine set for late February

The Mad Hatter was a fan favorite from the “Once Upon a Time” universe and a spinoff may be in the works, but not with Sebastian Stan in the role.

According to Deadline, ABC is considering spinning off the popular “Once Upon a Time” character into his own show, but Stan is reportedly unavailable for the potential series commitment due to his roles in Broadway play “Picnic” and the “Captain America” franchise.

Instead, ABC is said to be considering recasting Stan’s role.

Deadline reports that the network is looking at two possible options for the Hatter project: Filming a short presentation starring the character (with the potential for a 13-episode series commitment should execs like what they see), or reintroducing the recast character for another guest arc later this season on “Once Upon a Time,” with an episode filmed as a backdoor pilot.

Creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis are also working on the Mad Hatter project and would be showrunners on both series should Hatter move forward, where it would be in contention for a fall 2013 premiere.

The CW is employing the same strategy for their “Vampire Diaries” spinoff, “The Originals.”

In a press release reported on Once Upon a Fan, Titan Magazines reveals that the new special souvenir tie-in magazine will allow fans to go, “Beyond the fairytales and open up the book to discover the truth about Storybrooke for yourself.”

The magazine is the must-have companion to the show with 148 pages bursting with exclusive cast interviews – Jennifer Morrison discusses how the extraordinary script offered her a challenge as an actor and opportunity for character growth; Jared Gilmore talks about playing Storybrooke’s little bookworm; Meghan Ory contemplates what it’s like to play a wolf in a sassy waitress’s clothing; Lana Parrilla talks about what it takes to be the Evil Queen – and revelations from the show’s creators, including Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis themselves. Plus there are in-depth making of features, from the costumes to the stunning fairytale settings to the magical special effects. There is also a guide to the first season and secrets about what’s in store for fans in the rest of season two. This all-encompassing guide brings you closer than you ever thought possible to the world behind Once Upon a Time
