Look at those two young dudes.

Through all the shifts and tides of Hollywood, Burton and Elfman stuck together working together on every one of the director's films except for "Ed Wood" and "Sweeney Todd" and they're not about to change up that dynamic anytime soon.

Barnum, an adaptation of "Carousel," and his attachment to the sadly dead Steven Soderbergh-directed 3D "Cleo," in which Jackman would have starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Ray Winstone, to a score by Guided By Voices -- a project we'd sit through another half-dozen lacklustre Wolverine pictures to see resurrected.
