While it's not exactly film related, I found this bit of news rather interesting: Apparently, Tim Burton is directing his first-ever music video off a song called Bones by the Killers. Heck, if that's not some kick-ass groovy news, then I don't know what is. The entire thing came about when band members were brainstorming ideas for the Bones video, and thought it would be cool if Tim Burton would direct. (Ha, I'd imagine a lot of musicians say the exact same thing about their own videos.)
After reaching out to Burton's "people," the Corpse Bride director showed interest and ultimately decided to take on the project. According to MTV, the video features "plenty of nods to Burton's big-screen roots -- including models, miniature sets and, of course, skeletons -- but with a decidedly Vegas twist." Bassist Mark Stoermer admits the band is normally very involved in conceptualizing and producing their videos, though on this one they're letting "Tim do his thing." Currently, Burton and his team are in London working on the video, and there's no word on when it will debut.
