Sacha Baron Cohen is going from Borat to ‘Sweeney Todd's’ Signor Adolfo Pirelli, a barber who becomes the arch-rival of Sweeney Todd.
The barber teams with Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter) to kill people grind them up and use them in her meat pies. Pic stars Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd.
Tim Burton will helm the screen version of Stephen Sondheim’s musical for DreamWorks and WB.
‘Sweeney Todd’ will shoot in London beginning in February 2007.
