Page Six reported this morning that a few prissy Warner Bros. execs have asked Tim Burton to tone down some of the gore in his upcoming film adaptation of SWEETIE LA! (or Sweeney Todd).
I say don't listen to them, Timmy-Sweetie! I happen to like my movie musicals with blood and guts. Especially on Christmas. What would would Singin' in the Rain be, for instance, without all the violence and rape sequences? Not nearly as effective.
The defense rests.
