In this musical thriller directed by Tim Burton, Depp plays Sweeney Todd, an insane barber who seeks revenge for the loss of his beloved, and gets it easily as soon as the victim sits in his barber chair. After killing the hapless souls, they are sent to the neighbor lady, Mrs. Lovett, to be made into her amazingly popular meat pies. The two grow closer as she tries to win his attentions, until Todd discovers her dark deeds and the night explodes into violence. Co-starring Helena Bonham Carter and Alan Rickman.
I’d seen the more recent production of it and then just thought it might be, you know certainly a great opportunity to, to try to find a, a new Sweeney, a different Sweeney. Just like a little contemporary in the sense of like also the punk rock Sweeney you know.
