Sweeney Todd teaser poster and new cast members!

Sorry for the somewhat late update; Variety has released an official teaser poster of Sweeney Todd. Click on the above thumbnail to see a larger version. The poster also confirms a few casting rumours; Timothy Spall and Christopher Lee will indeed appear in the movie!
This marks the first time Burton will work with the British actor Timothy Spall (Wormtail from the Harry Potter movies) and it will be his fourth collaboration with the legendary Christopher Lee.
Timothy Spall's role has been reported to be Beadle Bramford. Christopher Lee's role is still unknown.
Thanks to karloffornia13, Fuzzy Duck and other loyal Burtonites for reporting this!
