Tim Burtonís future projects: ďWell, Iím currently woerking on Sweeny Todd, which will be released in mid-2007. After that, Iím gonna start working on a new script that was sent to me recently: Grim Fandango. It sort of follows the style of The nightmare before Christmas and Corpse Bride. Itís about a surreal land of the dead, some sort of purgatory where everyone goes when they die. In that place, dead people have to make a four-year transition before they can rest in peace for all the eternity. I still donít know when weíre going to start filming this, though.




Just a rumor at this point, but who knows, If they can pull this off properly it could very easily
be the best game to movie adaption. The game itself is very cinematic so with the right writers we could see one amazing movie.

No seriously - that idea would be too fanboyis-good to ever come true.

If it ever did get made and released, I bet EA would get the license for the film and make shitty platformers for every console HOORAY!

Considering that this reads too good to be true and that no other site (via Google News) seems to have picked up on this nearly week old news, I think this web site stinks.

The fact that the 'about' page isn't even filled out makes me think it's someone f'ing with fans, creating the illusion of a real interview with quotes from other Burton comments.

http://movies.about.com/od/thecorpse...tb092005_2.htm

Several of the quotes are taken directly from that interview. Cue crying.

It does have a bunch of other previous entries though, none of which have anything to do with video games or Tim Burton.

Well sure, but look at the first entry -- he just randomly interviews Christopher Lambert?

...and I found one of the Lambert quotes here --

*whew* So this is fake? Burton doesn't belong anywhere near this amazing story.

I would also accept nothing less than all the people of the original vocal cast.

Edit: The quote about the story isn't even correct.

I loved this game. The voice acting, story, and characters were great!

Not sure how a movie would be, but anything grim fandango is fine with me (please don't ruin it!)
