Johnny Depp enjoyed himself in a rather bizarre manner on the set of his new movie Sweeny Todd by soaking himself in fake blood.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star recently revealed that he really enjoyed filming g ory scenes for the film, as he loved getting drenched in a red liquid.
Depp said that he found it amusing to watch the crew being hit by the red corn syrup mixture used in violent scenes.
“Everyone except me was covered in plastic. It was a bizarre sight. There’d be a countdown – three – two – one… action. Then blammo (sic), a deluge of what looked like blood! Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
It tasted kind of syrupy. It was also oily so it got pretty slippery,” he added.
The London press day for Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd was held today. Set to open on Christmas, Sweeney Todd stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Sasha Baron Cohen.
IESB’s Andy Duke attended the roundtable interviews with Burton, Depp, Carter and Rickman and had a few interesting quotes to share. Complete transcripts are coming soon but here are the highlights! Read more… »
Circle Monday, December 3rd on your calendar in red . . . because that’s when the long-awaited premiere of Tim Burton’s SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, starring Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd and Helena Bonham Carter as his confederate Mrs. Lovett, will take place! Honoring SWEENEY TODD’s Broadway roots–the film is a faithful adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Tony-Award-winning musical–the premiere is scheduled to occur in New York City at the Zeigfeld Theatre, at 8 pm.
The Hollywood Reporter calls Johnny Depp “the latest A-list actor to fall victim to the Writers Guild of America strike” in a story headlined “Depp in play as strike delays two films.” That doesn’t mean that Johnny will be toplining a stage production any time soon (although the idea is not without charm); “in play” means that he is currently free–not committed to any film that’s shooting soon–and that studios can hope to entice him to sign on to a new project that would film in early 2008. The Zone sincerely hopes there are some interesting projects out there with completed shooting scripts and an intriguing role that would be perfect for Johnny Depp, and that Tracey Jacobs’ phone is ringing right now.
About the two Depp films put on hold, the Hollywood Reporter says, “The actor was scheduled to film SHANTARAM–Warner Bros. and Initial Entertainment Group’s adaptation of the Gregory David Roberts novel–in the winter, but that project has now been postponed. Among the reasons the film has been delayed is that the script was not in the shape the filmmakers wanted; the current strike prohibits any revisions. Budgetary concerns also were a factor. Sources said SHANTARAM’s budget was heading north of $75 million, outside the studio’s comfort zone for the drama set in India and Afghanistan.”
As for THE RUM DIARY, it has also been “put on hold,” says the Hollywood Reporter. “Bruce Robinson, whose 1987 comedy WITHNAIL & I gained a cult following, was adapting and directing. THE RUM DIARY, loosely based on [Hunter S.] Thompson’s experience working as a freelance journalist in Puerto Rico in the late 1950s, is in the development stages. Depp had planned to make the film after SHANTARAM.”
Thanks to Lú from DeppLovers, I have added some goodies from Sweeney Todd.
There’s new stills and scans from Playbill in the gallery.
Also, four awesome audio files from the movie. I created a subsection for this ones, and added lyric from My Friends (short edition) and Johanna. You can check it here, but be aware with the spoilers, because Epiphany and My Friends (full edition) has a lot of them.
I totally forgot to post this before. I received a email last night from the awesome Casey Stone, from Paramount, allerting about the Official MySpace from Sweeney Todd. If you have a MySpace profile, be sure to add as your friend and enter to win a chance to meet Johnny Depp at the Global Premiere!
f you’ve checked out our first Buzzmeter, you’ll see that I buck the pundit tide and boldly predict that “Sweeney Todd” will win the Oscar for best picture.
No, I haven’t seen the film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway classic yet, but I have now heard from enough viewers to feel confident that I’m making a shrewd, if recklessly early call. They’re all deliriously passionate about it — in fact, they’re as mad for it as Sweeney is for his revenge-wreaking razor — and so far it’s the only film on the scene to inspire this kind of joy.
“Sweeney Todd” does that to people, even though they’re actually rooting for a deranged chap to slash men’s throats. It’s a proven recipe for Oscar victory, tattling on Hollywood’s sick dark side. Let’s recall that the last musical to win best picture — “Chicago” — also asked viewers to cheer on characters to get away with murder. Read more… »
The Film Society of Lincoln Center will show clips from the upcoming film version of Sweeney Todd as part of An Evening with Tim Burton, to be held at 8pm on Wednesday, November 14 at the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
