Here is a press release confirming Johnny Depp as Co-Host to Tim Burton Gala Benefit. Johnny Depp is to co-host a tribute to acclaimed filmmaker Tim Burton. The three-time Oscar nominee, who has starred in seven of Burton's films including Edward Scissorhands, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and the upcoming Alice In Wonderland, will chair the star-studded ceremony with Tim's long-term partner, Helena Bonham-Carter. The glittering gala dinner - which is expected to see Hollywood stars James Franco, Danny DeVito, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen and Miranda Kerr - will take place at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York on November 17.

Johnny Depp & Tim Burton were amoung the attendess at the Whitehouse Halloween Party Apparently Johnny Depp was dressed up as the Mad Hatter & Tim Burton was just let us say dressed up as something. It seems that this was a Disney sponsered event with characters from The Night Before Christmas. We found a pic of Tim Burton but unable to find one of Johnny Depp.
Allison Abbate producer of The Corpse Bride confirmed she'd be involved in Tim Burton's upcoming feature film version of his cult-favorite short "Frankenweenie." She also provided a few new details including that the picture will be completely in stop-motion animation.
As to whether the new incarnation will follow the original's 50's theme and be shot in black and white, Abbate hesitates a bit and replies, "Maybe. That's one of the ideas that is being put up. I think it would be really cool." Frankenweenie will begin production in early 2010 for a release conveniently around or before Halloween 2011.
For those of you who are anxiously waiting for news on Dark Shadows Abbat was asked Will he be working on a big screen adaptation of the "Dark Shadows" simultaneously? "Maybe," Abbate says laughing. "He's got to get through 'Alice [in Wonderland' first]."
And as for making the film in the popular 3D format that drove unexpected returns for Henry Selick's "Coraline" this past winter? For any industry pundit it's hard for distributor Walt Disney Studios not to push for it, but Abbate says, "That one we haven't talked about yet."
Originally a 1984 live action short that helped launched Burton's feature film directing career, "Frankenweenie" tells a sweet story about a boy who revives his favorite dead pooch a la "Frankenstein." When he introduces his recharged dog to his neighbors they freak out and after hounding him with pitchforks (just like the original source material), they and end up killing him (again) after he saves his young owner from a fire.Source:HitFix.com

Tim Burton is bringing his quirky, gothic touch to the pages of Harper's Bazaar. In a new fashion spread, he is pictured along with models posing in fashions inspired by his films like "The Nightmare Before Christmas," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Corpse Bride."

Among the designers who have their fashions featured in the macabre-style shoot are Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Oscar de la Renta.

In the short, a boy re-animates his dead dog a la Frankenstein, only to see his beloved pet rejected and persecuted by an angry mob. Now that Burton has graduated to literary remakes and musicals, a feature-length Frankenweenie will be a nice throwback to classic Burton. Read More...
