Sweeney Todd Starts Principal Photography

Principal photography has begun in London on Sweeny Todd, starring Johnny Depp in the Tim Burton directed screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller.

"I've always wanted to do a musical and 'Sweeney Todd' is my favorite," said Tim Burton. "Stephen's blend of humor, horror and emotion is something that has always connected with me."

This will be the sixth collaboration between Depp and Burton who worked previously together on Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Ed Wood, Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow. Depp comes fresh from completing the third "Pirates of the Caribbean" film in the Academy Award nominated role of Captain Jack Sparrow.
