This Oughta Be Fun!

Wonder If They'll Sell Meat Pies At The Snack Bar?

From my friend Zibig:

Johnny Depp will play Sweeney Todd in the film version of the musical.
The film will follow the legendary story of the London barber who murdered his customers by slitting their throats. Tim Burton will direct the film.

Depp and Burton have worked together several times in the past, producing films such as Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Ed Wood.

They also worked on an adaptation of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Burton plans to start shooting Sweeney Todd early in 2007, and it is due in cinemas later next year.

That reminds me... I didn't shave this morning!
