Tim Burton revisits some of his old ideas and collaborators. Not only is he finally making a feature-length version of his live-action short, Frankenweenie (and stop-motion, no less!), 26 years later, but his cast consists of actors that he has previously worked with.
Deadline.com has announced that Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), Catherine O'Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), and Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) will be lending their voices to the animated film.
Ryder and Landau will play the characters of Elsa and Mr. Rzykruski, while O'Hara and Short will each play five supporting roles, including Victor's mom and dad.
Frankenweenie will be unleashed in theaters on March 9th, 2012.
