Carter Reunites with Burton and Depp for Musical

Helena Bonham Carter will re-team Tim Burton and Johnny Depp in the big screen adaptation of Sweeney Todd. Carter, Burton's longtime off-screen partner, has starring roles in Burton-directed films such as Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Big Fish and Planet Of The Apes. Carter and Depp starred in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory together and both voiced characters in Burton's animated film Corpse Bride. She will play the devious Mrs. Lovett in the new film, a role originated onstage by Angela Lansbury, who is a murderess who dispenses of her victims' bodies in meat pies and becomes the girlfriend and accomplice of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, played by Depp. In most stage productions of the musical, Mrs. Lovett has been nearly a decade older than the Demon Barber and is usually someone in her fifties, but Carter and Depp are both in their early forties. Media reports has British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen joining the cast as rival barber Signor Adolfo Pirelli, but the studio would not confirm whether he'll be part of the film. Shooting begins early next year for a late 2007 release.

Burton Turns Attention to Sweeney Todd [13 Jun 2006|02:47pm]

Burton Turns Attention to Sweeney Todd
Source: Variety June 13, 2006

Paramount Pictures has postponed its Tim Burton-directed Ripley's Believe It or Not and Burton will now turn his attention to Sweeney Todd, an adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical developed by DreamWorks Pictures. Johnny Depp is attached to reteam with Burton for "Todd."

Variety says that "Ripley's" had been earmarked for a November start with Jim Carrey as the titular explorer-newspaper columnist. But Paramount has delayed the start of production on that film for at least one year, applying the brakes because of a budget that was north of $150 million and because Carrey and Burton wanted to make significant creative changes.

While "Ripley's" is the second Carrey vehicle to stall in recent weeks (Used Guys was dropped by Fox when its budget came in at $112 million), Paramount says they still want to make the film.

"It's the completely opposite situation," Paramount's co-president of production Brad Weston said. "We intend to make the movie with Tim and Jim, and the fact they are meeting later this week to continue working on the script shows our intent to go forward. We wanted to get to the right place creatively and financially, and through our relationship with DreamWorks, this picture switch was made easy and seamless."

Carrey and Burton had ideas to change the script by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski in ways significant enough to require rewrites by those screenwriters and a re-thinking of the f/x budget. The result would change the emphasis from Ripley to some of the wonders he uncovered for his "Believe It or Not" column.

Carrey will likely make another comedy while he, Burton and Paramount continue to work, in hopes they can meet up in China in fall 2007.

Director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, who have teamed up five times already and most recently for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, will reunite once again for Sweeney Todd.

MovieMusicals.net reports that Depp will play the title character in the film, which is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s musical. The official synopsis of the story is as below:

The legendary barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through London's upper crust. Justice will be served - along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills.

Carrey & Burton Teaming on Ripley Pic [29 Nov 2005|12:44pm]

Jim Carrey will topline and Tim Burton will direct Paramount Pictures' action-adventure film based on the exploits of Robert Ripley, the explorer and newspaper columnist who created "Ripley's Believe It or Not."

Variety reports that the studio expects to begin production on the film, titled Believe It or Not!, in London in October for a late 2007 release.

Carrey, who'll next be seen starring in Fun with Dick and Jane, will squeeze in two movies before reporting to the Ripley set. He'll next star for Joel Schumacher in the New Line thriller Number 23 opposite Elisabeth Shue, and then he will star with Ben Stiller in the Jay Roach-directed Used Guys for 20th Century Fox.

The trade says the studio courted Burton and Carrey for several months. Once Burton came clear of "The Corpse Bride," he sparked to the idea of doing the script with Carrey.

The film is scripted by Burton's Ed Wood writers Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander. The duo also worked with Carrey on the Andy Kaufman biopic Man on the Moon.

New project picks up Ripley at a time when he has attained celebrity status through a "Believe It or Not" column that chronicled his search for the greatest oddities on the planet. Along the way, he learns to appreciate his unusual human discoveries as more than mere conquests to be catalogued.

MY FIRST POST! WEE!!

Okay...lets not get too excited.

Well, since this is a Timmy community, all of us are mostly open minded. I hope.
I wrote a little tiny itty bitty story that was inspired by the recent "porn movie with Tim" comment that Johnny made. Enjoy it!

Title: Oddly Tim
Words: 222
Notes: I wrote this in about 5-10 minutes. no joke. forgive me if it's bad. It was very spur of the moment.

What the HELL?!Collapse )

I just found this little article on Johnny and it amused me.
***

Johnny Depp isn't shy

Johnny Depp tells Glamour UK that he fears he'll have to start doing porno films just to avoid getting typecast. Best known for his eccentric work as Captain Jack Sparrow, Hunter Thompson and now Willy Wonka, Depp has never been afraid to stray from the path.

"These kind of characters are not so far from my own personality, but I don't want to become typecast as an eccentric. Maybe next time I should do something totally different and film a porn with Tim [Burton]. That would really send my popularity down to the depths!"

Forward to Burton on Burton. [09 Aug 2005|02:35pm]

So I've been comtemplating updating the first post for a couple of days now because I just didn't know what to say. Then I thought, since this is a new community named after the biography of Tim Burton, why not start how the book starts? With that forward.

So I give you the forward to Burton On Burton written by the one and only Johnny Depp:

"In the winter of 1989, I was in Vancouver, British Columbia, doing a television series. It was a very difficult situation: bound by a contract doing assembly line stuff that was, to me, borderline Fascist, (cops in school... Christ!). My fate, it seemed, lay somewhere between Chips and Joanie Loves Chachi. There were only a limited number of choices for me: (1) get through it as best I could with minimal abrasion; (2) get fired as fast as I could with slightly more abrasion; (3) quit and be sued for not only any money I had, but also the money of my children and my children's children (which, I imagine, would have caused severe chafing and possible shingles for the rest of my natural days and on through the next few generations of Depps to come). Like I said, this was truly a dilemma. Choice (3) was out of the question, thanks to extremely sound advice from my attorney. As for (2), well, I tried, and they just wouldn't bite. Finally, I settled on (1): I would get by as best I could...."

And the rest under hereCollapse )
