'Scissorhands' Ballet Smashes Box Office Records

28 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A dance adaptation of Tim Burton movie Edward Scissorhands has become an unexpected hit on the London stage - before it has even opened. Ticket sales for the ballet, based on the Johnny Depp movie, topped $1.8 million before its first night on Tuesday. The staggering booking rush beat director Matthew Bourne's own theatre box office record, and he is delighted that Burton snapped up 12 of the popular tickets. Bourne requested the rights to the story - which follows a scientist who creates a young man with scissors for hands - almost 10 years ago from the maverick film-maker, but is grateful the project eventually materialized. He says, "I gave up on it once or twice. I couldn't talk about it any longer and had to get it out of my head." »

Burton Credits 'Pirates' with Saving Depp

9 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Johnny Depp owes his blossoming career to The Pirates Of The Caribbean because it was a financial success, according to his Charlie And The Chocolate Factory director Tim Burton. The movie-maker loves working with Depp and fought hard to get him on board Edward Scissorhands, but insists studios were frightened of his unpredictability and reluctance to be a celebrity. Burton tells Empire magazine, "He's always been known as a good actor, but you know, Hollywood is a very safe community, and it's like their attitude towards me: they think he is a good actor but they are also a little bit worried because he likes to transform himself. He's more like Lon Chaney than he is a leading man. I hope and I think that they see an integrity to him and, except in my movies, they like the way he looks. Of course ever since the Pirate movie made money it's been different, because they see that as meaningful." »
