One of Hollywood’s best director/actor duos are at it again. Read on for details.
News got out today that Johnny Depp is set to star in a remake of the Vincent Price classic, The Abominable Dr. Phibes. The remake will also be directed by Tim Burton and most likely have Helana Bonham-Carter in it somewhere (my guess is as Phibes’ assistant, Vulnavia.)
It’s no secret that Tim Burton is a fan of Vincent Price. One of Burton’s first shorts, Vincent, is about a boy who wants to be just like Vincent Price. Price was also cast in Edward Scissorhands as the inventor who made Depp’s Edward come to life. This was also Price’s last major film role before his death in 1993.
This will be the ninth pairing for Burton and Depp and has the potential to be one of the best ones yet.
Also, I’d like to wish a happy birthday to the late, great Vincent Price. He would have been 102 today.
