Tim Burton fills Frankenweenie cast

Tim Burton has roped in a few old friends to lend their lungs to his full-length “Frankenweenie” feature.

Based on one of Burton’s earlier shorts, the film tells of a Bull Terrier who is hit by a car and resurrected with Frankenstein-ien techniques. John August (“Big Fish”) wrote the screenplay.

According to Deadline, Burton has recruited his “Beetlejuice” and “Edward Scissorhands” star Winona Ryder to play Elsa; Martin Landau (“Ed Wood”) will be Mr. Rzykruski; and Martin Short (“Mars Attacks!”) and Catherine O’Hara (“Beetlejuice”, “The Nightmare before Christmas”) will voice five characters each! Short plays Bob, Nassor, Toshiaki, Victor’s Dad and Mr. Bergermeister. O’Hara voices Edgar, Weird Girl, Victor’s Mom, and Gym Teacher.

No Johnny Depp!? Seems not. ‘Spose there’s still time. “Frankenweenie” isn’t due in theaters until March 2012. (Then again, Depp likely didn’t want to be involved after hearing his one-time fiancee is the film’s lead).

It’s going to be a busy couple of years for Burton, he has no less than half-a-dozen other projects on his ‘to do’ list, including : “Sleeping Beauty” spin-off “Maleficent” (which Angelina Jolie is being touted for); “The Addams Family” (based more so on the old cartoon strip than the feature films); and “Dark Shadows”, based on the TV show of the same name, starring Burton-fave Johnny Depp.
