We just reported last week about Tim Burton’s involvement in the ADDAMS FAMILY reboot (see item here). But before the ALICE IN WONDERLAND director—who is also attached to a DARK SHADOWS film with Johnny Depp—does anything else, it now appears that Burton’s next directorial gig will be the 3D, feature-length, stop-motion adaptation of his beloved black-and-white 1984 live-action short, FRANKENWEENIE.
A lighthearted riff on FRANKENSTEIN, the movie stars Barret Oliver as the young Victor Frankenstein, who decides to bring his dog Sparky back to life after his best friend is hit by a car. Burton had been working on bringing a fresh iteration of the film to the big screen, and now FRANKENWEENIE executive producer Don Hahn has told Ain’t It Cool News, “The puppets are ready, the script is done and now that Tim Burton is clear of ALICE IN WONDERLAND…he’s set to helm FRANKENWEENIE in 3D.”
