Shocker! Elfman to Score Burton Film


Ah, but which one will it be?

Danny Elfman is set to score the upcoming family flick Frankenweenie, the latest from director Tim Burton.

The stop-motion animated film – based on Burton’s short film of the same name – features the vocal work of Winona Ryder, Martin Landau, Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara.

It’s set to open in 3D on October 5, 2012 and is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
