Lincoln Center Film Society to Show Sweeney Todd Clips
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.
This special event will include a conversation with the director and a screening of clips from his various films. Sweeney Todd, which Burton has adapted from the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical, will open officially on December 21 with a cast led by Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Alan Rickman.
Garth Franklin of DarkHorizons.com reports the up-coming Tim Burton movie-musical adaptation of Sweeney Todd will receive an MPAA R-rating due to the amount of violence and gore in the film.
“Word was that Sweeney Todd, Tim Burton’s film version of the Stephen Sondheim musical about a barber who slashes throats and his cohort who bakes their remains into pies, had a lot of violence and gore. So, talk began that it was to be cut down to a PG-13 by executives hoping to cash in on Johnny Depp’s bankability with the teen crowd,” states the website, “The good news is the cuts aren’t being made, the MPAA has passed the film with an R-rating for ‘graphic bloody violence’ which sounds like Burton’s vision is remaining intact.”
While riskier parts of Burton’s film may remain intact, speculators say this may also make it more difficult for underage musical theatre- and Depp-fans alike to buy tickets.
Be alive if you can! I found three high quality stills from movie Sweeney Todd. I almost fall from my chair. Take a look, and fall from yours, too:

Johnny Depp is to produce and star in the film adaptation of Hunter S Thompson’s autobiographical novel ‘The Rum Diary’. Thompson wrote the book – which is loosely based on his time in the 1950s working as a journalist in Puerto Rico – in 1959 but it was not published until 1998.
Oscar-winning producer Graham King’s GK Films has acquired the rights to the book, which King will produce with Depp for Warner Independent Pictures.
Depp will also star as Paul Kemp, a journalist writing for a rundown newspaper in San Juan alongside a motley self-destructive crew. Bruce Robinson (‘Withnail & I’) is writing the adapted screenplay and will direct. [source]
Some forty odd years ago a soap opera began its run, which would eventually take it to 1245 episodes by the time it went off the air in 1971. But this was no garden variety soap opera. This was “Dark Shadows”.
According to trade magazine Variety, via Filmstalker, Johnny Depp’s production company Infinitum-Nihil, GK Films, and Warner Bros. have signed a deal with the estate of the late Dan Curtis, and secured the rights to develop a feature film based on the show. Depp and Graham King will produce with David Kennedy, who ran Dan Curtis Prods. until Curtis’ death. There’s no word on who would direct, and indeed no word on whether Mr Depp would take on the signature role of Barnabas Collins himself. But it would seem the obvious choice, especially considering his personal attachment to the character:
Depp has said in interviews that he has always been obsessed with “Dark Shadows” and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series.
