Tim Burton saw past Johnny Depp's good looks

Feb 18 2013, 10:14am CST | by

Tim Burton cast Johnny Depp in 'Edward Scissorhands' in spite of his pretty boy reputation.

The filmmaker - who has worked with the Hollywood actor countless times - saw past the teen heartthrob status Johnny's '80s TV crime drama '21 Jump Street' afforded him and discovered a sensitive man pigeon-holed because of his looks, which he thought was perfect for the lead role in his iconic fantasy film.

He explained: ''It was quite simple. I mean, I knew about '21 Jump Street', and I had seen pictures and stuff, and I met him and he just reminded me of what the character was. At the time he was perceived as a teen idol, you know, a Justin Bieber type of guy, but as a person he wasn't that.

''So, for me, he mirrored what Edward Scissorhands was: he was something inside, but people treated him a certain way because of the way he looks. So in a weird way, he was the character, because he had those feelings.''

The 1990 film marked the beginning of the pair's many collaborations, and Tim says over the years he has looked to his muse for creative inspiration when it comes to penning scripts.

Quizzed about Johnny's involvement in the films, Tim added in an interview with Deadline's AwardsLine: ''It depends. Every one has been different. I'm trying to think back. With 'Ed Wood', the script was there.

''I think on 'Sweeney Todd', I just asked him, before there was a script, if he'd go for it. But usually there's a script.''

Were Robin Williams & Johnny Depp Going to Save the World?

Sep 9 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Here at my house, we are still not at a place where we can talk about the passing of Robin Williams with any sort of coherence. It usually just results in one or more of us descending into weepy tears of loss and heartbreak.Like this, but way less attractive.However, there is almost nothing more sad at this point than hearing about all of the amazing projects that could have been, had we not lost Williams too soon. But, such news keeps coming, most recently in the form of a dr ...

Stan Lee Reunites With ‘Mallrats’ Director Kevin Smith in ‘Yoga Hosers’

Aug 28 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for Smith in film number two, Mallrats, when Lee showed up – as himself – to spout a few gross words of wis ...

Into the Woods Photo: Meryl Streep Looks Whacked!

Aug 22 2014 10:33am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We know Meryl Streep plays a witch in Into the Woods, but with a new photo from Disney form their upcoming big screen version of the Broadway musical, she looks a little more whacked than witchy! We were pretty darn impressed with that photo of Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and the Into the Woods teaser trailer is truly compelling (even without any musical numbers), but there is something about the below photo of Streep as the evil ce ...
