Tim Burton a bit too busy to direct 'Breaking Dawn'
Iconic filmmaker Tim Burton is a bit busy these days finishing "Alice in Wonderland" and prepping his own Vampire flick "Dark Shadows" but he indulged in responding to a former actor's request about directing the fourth novel in the Stephenie Meyer series, "Breaking Dawn."
Burton's "Sweeney Todd" star Jamie Campbell Bower told MTV News he thought the man behind "Edward Scissorhands" and "Sleepy Hollow" would be the perfect filmmaker to helm "Dawn."
Speaking at a retrospective of his work at the Museum of Modern Art, Burton told MTV:
"He's being biased, because I worked with him on 'Sweeney Todd,' " Burton laughed. "But that's nice to hear. In case potential jobs run out, it'd be nice to know someone."
Nice try though Jamie.
