The director has made Johnny Depp the star of several of his films
Tim Burton is an American film director, film producer, writer, poet and stop motion artist who is widely recognized for his films “Beetlejuice”, “Edward Scissorhands”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Corpse Bride”.
Timothy Walter Burton was born in Burbank, California, on August 25, 1958. From an early age he showed an aptitude for drawing and animation. In 1976 he enrolled in the California Institute of the Arts.
In his sophomore year, he entered Disney’s animation program. Two years later, he joined their line of animators, however, Burton’s style did not fit, so he ended up being fired by the studio.
Burton served as director of the film “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” (1985), which became Burton’s first feature film and was an unexpected success.
Just three years later, Burton’s vision was taken to the next level with the film “Beetlejuice” (1988), which was another hit.
After that, Warner Bros. let him take the helm of their long-awaited “Batman” (1989), because he had proven that he was capable of producing very popular and profitable films with modest and limited budgets, and the superhero movie was a monster hit, earning over $400 million globally.
In 1990, Burton produced “Edward Scissorhands,” which became another hit and a cult classic. With this film, he had total creative control, from writing the story to producing the final product.
He has said that, for him, this film represents the struggle he had to communicate effectively with others as a teenager.
It was also the first time Burton cast actor Johnny Depp in one of his films; they went on to enjoy an extensive working relationship, with Depp appearing in eight of Burton’s films, including “Sleepy Hollow” (1999), “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005), the animated film “Corpse Bride” (2005) , “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” (2007), “Alice in Wonderland” (2010) and “Dark Shadows” (2012).
Among other films he has produced include “Batman Returns” (1991), the sequel to the 1989 Batman movie, “Mars Attacks!” (1996), “Planet of the Apes” (2001), which grossed $68 million in its first weekend; “Big Fish” (2003), and the animated feature “Frankenweenie” (2012), a stop-motion remake of his original 1984 live-action short film.
In addition, the biographical drama “Big Eyes” (2014), about American artist Margaret Keane; “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” (2016), based on the novel of the same name by Ransom Rigg; and “Dumbo” (2019), a live-action adaptation of Disney’s original 1941 animated film.
According to the website Celebrity Net Worth, Tim Burton’s net worth in 2022 is $100 million. The director’s net worth would be much higher if it weren’t for two marriages and a long-term relationship breakup.
Tim was in a relationship with Helena Bonham Carter, without being legally married from 2001 to 2014. And while the exact details of their settlement are not known, she received approximately $20 million in real estate after they separated.
