Venice Film Festival Update: TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE to screen on September 7th

The 62nd annual Venice Film Festival will screen TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE out of competition at 7:30 p.m. in the Sala Grande on Wednesday, September 7, 2005. The stop-motion animated feature is already generating strong Oscar buzz in the trades, although it will not premiere in the U.S. until September 23rd. CORPSE BRIDE was directed by Mike Johnson and Tim Burton, and its voice cast includes Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Christopher Lee, Albert Finney, and Emily Watson. There has been no announcement yet regarding the talent who will appear in Venice in support of CORPSE BRIDE. Johnny will be shooting PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 3 at that time; he may not be free to attend the Venice Film Festival, but of course all his fans (and no doubt the festival organizers)are hoping he will make an appearance. The Zone thanks emma for posting the Venice date on the News & Views forum.

In related festival news, today’s Hollywood Reporter announces that CORPSE BRIDE will screen out of competition at this year’s Deauville festival. Screening date at Deauville is Saturday, September 10th. Thanks, emma!
