God, that’s good!

Helena Bonham Carter has been announced for the role of Mrs. Lovett in the Tim Burton film version of Sweeney Tood. According to the announcement in Variety, La Carter will do her own singing of the Stephen Sondheim score. She will star opposite long-time Burton collaborator Johnny Depp, who will play the title role.

The story goes on to speculate that Sacha Baron Cohen is considering the role of Adolfo Pirelli, but DreamWorks Studios (producers of the film) would neither confirm nor deny.
