Burton directed a short film called Victor in 1982, two years before he did the original live action Frankenweenie, about a seven-year-old whose hero is Vincent Price. As heroes go that's a good one, right? Well, maybe Ambercrombie isn't sold on it.
Sparky owes a lot to another 80s Burton animated short, Family Dog. I loooooove this. It first appeared on Steven Speilberg's Amazing Stories in 1987.
So...do you think Richard Armitage should do a Burton film? Johnny Depp still has the leads locked up, but what kind of character do you think Armitage could play for him? Sir Guy of Gisborne was pretty goofy gothy so we know he can pull it off. Comments are open. Have a great day!
