Depp To Play Demon Barber?

Hollywood heart-throb JOHNNY DEPP has been tipped to star in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical SWEENEY TODD.

The FINDING NEVERLAND star has been linked to the role of THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET in the STEPHEN SONDHEIM musical.

British film-maker SAM MENDES is set to direct and produce the Dreamworks project, while RUSSELL CROWE has also been linked to role of the Sweeney Todd.

However, British newspaper The Sun claims EDWARD SCISSORHANDS director TIM BURTON is keen to direct the film with his pal Depp.

It's about time Johnny did a musical! He's done just about everything else now we should see his real talent! He is without a doubt a great, versatile actor, but my guess is he is a better musician! I hope this info is true and not just someone trying to pull our chains.Maybe it's Johnny playing with the press again? I hope not!Go for it Johnny! show them what real talent is!PS. Fingers crossed for an Oscar in the near future!
