Tim Burton adds some familiar faces to his Frankenweenie cast

09.20.2010

Now, here's a Tim Burton project I don't mind hearing about. (I'm still up in the air with the whole DARK SHADOWS movie.)

Burton has found his cast for the stop-motion animated version of FRANKENWEENIE. The film is based on his 1984 short about a man who brings his dog back to life after he is hit by a car.

My favorite Burton lady, Winona Ryder will be voicing Elsa the "goody-two-shoes" girl. Martin Landau, who won the Academy Award for his portrayal of Bela Lugosi in ED WOOD will voice Mr. Rzykruski. No notes on that character as of yet.

Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara will both take on five characters. Short will lend his voice to Bob, Nassor, Toshiaki, Victor's Dad, and Mr. Bergermeister. The awesome O'Hara ("He likes it.") voices Edgar, Weird Girl, Victor's Mom, and Gym Teacher. As you remember, Short was Press Secretary Jerry Ross in one of the most bizarre alien invasion movies ever, MARS ATTACKS. O'Hara appeared in BEETLEJUICE and lent her voice to Sally and Shock in THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

John August has written three screenplays directed by Burton, those being: BIG FISH, CORPSE BRIDE, and CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. The film will be released by Walt Disney Pictures on March 9, 2012.

Original Work

I love Tim Burton and the characters that he has created over the years, but I really want him to get off this remake-rollercoaster and create something new again. He hasn't made an original movie since Mars Attacks I think. Everything else has been a book, movie, tv show, comic, or even a fairy tale (corpse bride). Hell he is even remaking his own short film with this thing.

Again, no Michael Keaton. What the hell Burton? THis guy was Batman for you for two great movies and was Beetlejuice and you never work with him again in any one of your movies? I don't get it. Burton works with all of his other actors he has casted but not Keaton? Bullshit.

Burton made some great characters out of these actors in the past, so to see them together this much later is definitely something to look forward to. I can't wait.

And Burton does not = emo. Burton + Hot Topic = emo.

You would think Depp and Carter would be a shoe in, I guess not.
