With Sam Mendes apparently directing the Sweeney Todd movie this year, do you think there's much chance of Bernadette getting the part of Mrs.Lovett? They have a prior relationship, so that may help. PLUS she'd be utterly fabulous in the role! Is it too much to hope for?

I think there's some chance, but I wouldn't bet that it's a very strong possibility. Just my opinion--and I'm a complete pessimist by nature.

I think the creative team would love the idea, but the studio people would not be likely to approve the casting of someone seen as primarily a theatre performer.

In fact, I'm not at all convinced that the film will ever really happen, no matter what may have been announced.

I just hope that all my negative hunches are proven wrong, because Bernadette in Sweeney would be a dream come true.

Bernadette's said that she'd love to do it if she were offered the role. I'd love to see her in it.

Excuse me for posting in this section...but since we are on the topic of Sweeney Todd... I have been looking for the Sweeney Todd DVD with Angela Lansbury and George Hearn. I haven't been able to find it, even though I have heard that it does exist. I would love to purchase this because the video that I bought years ago is starting to show it's age! Let me know if it does exist!
