THE TOURIST to film in Venice, says costume designer Colleen Atwood

We haven’t heard much, officially, about The Tourist since those first tantalizing rumors about a thriller starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie started appearing last November. However, producer Graham King has given several press interviews where, despite the lack of official announcements, he has spoken confidently about “a little film called The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie,” which he expects to begin filming in February. Now Women’s Wear Daily, of all unlikely sources, gets some confirmation from costume designer extraordinaire Colleen Atwood, who has named The Tourist as her next film project. Today’s WWD reports the following about Ms. Atwood:

Next up, Atwood said she’s off to Venice to work on The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. Then she teams up once again with Tim Burton–having previously worked on a number of Burton’s films, including Edward Scissorhands–for his take on the 1970s vampire soap opera Dark Shadows. ‘It’s really the most fun a person can have because Tim really lets you do your thing,’ she said.”
