Alan Rickman Puts on His Bad Jeans for ‘Sweeney Todd’!

After seeing him in DreamWorks’ Perfume: A Story of a Murderer this past week, it reminded me of how bad ass Alan Rickman was (Die Hard, Harry Potter). Being that he was on my mind, it was incredible news to me that he will star as Judge Turpin in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd, according to Screen Daily. He joins Johnny Depp, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter. The film is set to shoot in the UK starting February 5th. Stephen Sondheim musical thriller revolves around Benjamin Barker alias Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after being deported to find out what happened to his wife and child at the hands of Judge Turpin. When he learns of their terrible fate he joins fortunes with Mrs. Nellie Lovett, the baker downstairs from his barbershop, and sets out to seek revenge.
