The poster for Sweeney Todd was unveiled today at Comic Con and has been making the rounds. The movie is the next in Tim Burton’s strange world usually starring the equally bizarre Johnny Depp. And um… it’ll be a musical… about a barber… who slits people’s throats and bakes them into pies. It’s an adaptation of Sondheim’s Broadway version. What?
Apparently the cast will be doing their own singing, so at least that should be interesting.
Tim Burton had this to say about the movie. “This will be just like the Sound of Music, only with lots of blood. We’re already laughing about it.”
The movie is due out on January 11, 2008.
