In Sondheim's words, "[Burton] went off and did other things. Meanwhile, director Sam Mendes had been working on a film version of the story for several years,  and in June Sondheim was approached to write the script.
Parkes obtained his approval to use writer John Logan instead. Logan had previously collaborated with Parkes Swinging tod trailer Gladiatorand claimed his biggest challenge in adapting the Sondheim stage play "was taking a sprawling, magnificent Broadway musical and making it cinematic, and an emotionally honest film.
Onstage, you can have a chorus sing as the people of London, but I think that would be alienating in a movie. On Burton's hiring, he and Logan reworked the screenplay;  Logan felt they agreed over the film's tone due to "share[d] stunted childhoods watching Amicus movies".
Some songs were shortened, while others were completely removed. Sondheim himself is not a real big fan of movie musicals, so he was Swinging tod trailer open to honing it down to a more pacey shape. According to Lee, these deletions were due to time constraints caused by a break in filming during Marchwhile Depp's daughter recovered from an illness.
He recalled, "I really wanted this one — Swinging tod trailer knew Tim was directing and that Swinging tod trailer Depp was going Swinging tod trailer be in it. My daughter, my youngest daughter, really wanted me to do it for that reason — Johnny Depp was in it. She came on set to meet Depp and he was really delightful to her, she had a great time. Then, I took her to the junket — and Depp greeted her like an old pal when he saw her.
I've got plenty of brownie points at the moment. Three members of the cast had never been in a film before: I was out shopping at the time and I got this call on my mobile. Filming began on February 5, at Pinewood Studiosand was completed by May 11, despite a brief interruption when Depp's daughter was taken seriously ill. Burton initially planned to use Swinging tod trailer sets and film in front of a green screenbut decided against it, stating that physical sets helped actors get into a musical frame of mind: Depp created his own image of Todd.
Heavy purple and brown make-up was applied around his eyes to suggest fatigue and rage, as if "he's never slept". He's basically a dead person when you meet him; the only thing that's keeping him going is the one single minded thing which is tragic. You don't see anything else around him. He's been dead for years. That streak of white hair became the shock of that rage. It represented his rage over what had happened. It's certainly not the first time anyone's used it.
It tells a story all by itself.
My brother had a white spot growing up, and his son has this kind of shock of white in his hair. Burton insisted Swinging tod trailer the film be bloody, as he felt stage versions of the play which cut back on the bloodshed robbed it of its power. For him, "Everything is so internal with Sweeney that [the blood] is like his emotional release.
It's more about catharsis than it is a literal thing. Zanuck said that "[Burton] had a very Swinging tod trailer plan that he wanted to lift that up into a surreal, almost Kill Bill kind of stylization. We had done tests and experiments with the neck slashing, with the blood popping out.
I remember saying to Tim, 'My God, do we dare do this? Any movie is a risk, but it is nice to be able to do something like that that doesn't fit into the musical or slasher movie categories. After the filming, Burton said of the cast, "All I can say is this is one of the best casts I've ever worked with. These people are not professional singers, so to do a musical like this which I think is one of the most difficult musicals, they all went for it.
Every day on the set was a very, very special thing for me. Hearing all these guys Swinging tod trailer, I don't know if I can ever have an experience like that again.
It was very enjoyable for me to see, with music on the Swinging tod trailer everybody just moved differently. I'd seen Johnny Depp act in a way I'd never seen before, walking across the room or sitting in the chair, picking up a razor or making a pie, whatever.
They all did it in a way that you could sense.
