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.
People says that the 2007 sexiest men alive is Matt Damon. And in it’s list, Johnny it’s #6.
No offense to Matt fans, but we all know who is the sexiest man alive. lol
Why is he sexy? For starters, there’s his quirky style (he lives in France, dresses like a rock star, is not afraid of a little eyeliner) and his devil-may-care spirit (didn’t take a single singing lesson to prepare for his role in the upcoming musical Sweeney Todd). Most of all, there’s something heart-melting about how gaga he is for his gaggle – daughter Lily-Rose, 8, and son Jack, 5, his kids with longtime girlfriend Vanessa Paradis. “Suddenly you meet your reason to live,” Depp, 44, told London’s Daily Mail about being a father. “They make me happy.”
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!

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
