    Tim Burton Day set for September 5th - Variety 3/21/07

    Venice goes for Burton

    Fest to honor U.S. director

    ROME Tim Burton will receive the Golden Lion for career achievement from the Venice Intl. Film Festival, which will also honor the inventive Burbank-born helmer with a Tim Burton Day.

    Burton, who last docked at the Lido with the 2005 world bow of "Corpse Bride," will be celebrated on Sept. 5 at the Palazzo del Cinema with several special events that may include a sneak peak at his "Sweeney Todd" adaptation, now in production.

    The Warner Bros./DreamWorks movie version of the Stephen Sondheim musical, toplining Johnny Depp, has been plagued by production delays.
    Burton's other pics include "Edward Scissorhands," "Beetlejuice," "Batman" and "Mars Attacks!" A stage adaptation of "Scissorhands" is playing in Gotham.

    "Tim Burton is a genius; the most imaginative director spawned by the new age of cinematic art," said Venice artistic topper Marco Muller in a statement.

    Muller also praised Burton, who is 47, for "having a more insolent pop sensitivity than most new directors today and for being less needy of approval than most of the older masters."

    The 64th Venice fest will run Aug. 29-September 8.

    It's about time he got his own day, but we need it here in America. Not Venice.
