As has been long rumored, Tim Burton is in the middle of pre-production on his film version of Stephen Sondheim's genius musical Sweeney Todd, the story of a murderous barber and his partner, who bakes the remains of his victims into meat pies. It's awesome.
And Johnny Depp is set to star in it...except for one very small problem. Stephen Sondheim is a little worried that Depp's voice is too 'rock n' roll' for the film, so he's making Tim Burton give him a sound test. Personally, I really hope that Depp is good enough to do it, because he's likely to be really good...unless he ruins another one of my favorite things like he did with Willy Wonka.
