Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd" On Hold

by | March 14, 2007 | Comments

Production Tim Burton‘s adaptation of "Sweeney Todd" has been put on hold as star Johnny Depp cares for his daughter.

According to British tabloid The Daily Mirror, the star’s four-year-old daughter, Lily Rose, is stricken with an illness, and as a result, Depp has decided to postpone work on the tale of the demon barber of Fleet Street until she recovers.

However, the production staff may lose their jobs if Depp doesn’t return to the set soon.

"He does not want to come back until Lily-Rose gets the all-clear," said an unnamed source. "The plan is to re-employ everybody when she gets better."

"Sweeney Todd" tells the story of an English barber/serial killer. The tale was adapted into a popular musical by Stephen Sondheim.

Burton and Depp have enjoyed a fruitful working relationship over the years. They last collaborated on "Corpse Bride" in 2005. Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Alan Rickman are also slated to star in "Sweeney Todd."
