In 2007, Jamie Campbell Bower co-starred in Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” A few years later, after being cast as a vampire in [movie id=”414921″]”New Moon,”[/movie] the young British actor has not forgotten the director who gave him his big break, telling MTV News that Burton would be the ideal man to helm the final “Twilight” installment, “Breaking Dawn.”
What does Burton think about that idea? When we caught up with the director at the opening of a retrospective of his work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art , he was flattered.
“He’s being biased, because I worked with him on ’Sweeney Todd,’ ” Burton laughed. “But that’s nice to hear. In case potential jobs run out, it’d be nice to know someone.”
Also on hand for the festivities was “Twilight” franchise star Ashley Greene, who thought Burton would be an excellent fit for “Breaking Dawn,” following the work of Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz and David Slade.
“I think that would actually be a really great choice,” she said when asked about Bower’s directorial suggestion. “It would be completely different. But if you look at what we’ve done from ’Twilight’ to ’New Moon’ to ’Eclipse’ director-wise, they’re all completely different, because the tones are different. The fourth one’s a little odd, a little weird, and I definitely think that Tim Burton would put an amazing spin on it.”
What would that spin be? “You never really know what to expect,” Greene said. “You never know what you’re going to get, and I think, artistically, he’s just brilliant.”
