All right, Tim Burton. We'd still love you to put together another completely original project, but at least this is fantastic source material.
Tim Burton and Josh Brolin have joined forces with Warner Bros for a new film adaptation of Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is being written by Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows writers Keiran and Michele Mulroney.
Brolin will both produce and star in the film. No word yet on whether Burton will just produce, or also direct, but we'll keep an ear out.
Given the fact that he's currently busy in pre-production on Johnny Depp vampire film Dark Shadows, Burton MAY bail on the project if he's not WOWED by the script.
That being said, please impress him, Sherlock Holmes writers! We're thinking Burton is right for this project.
Are U excited for a new Hunchback film? Do U think Josh Brolin is right for Quasimodo?
