STORY: Burton, attending the Lucca Comics and Games pop culture festival in Italy to promote his new Netflix series "Wednesday", told Reuters he works with people on a "one at a time" basis.
“I think with anybody, you just, I never work with anybody even with my friends, it’s not like a party so I always would like to try it with him or anybody to kind of go; what is the part? What is the thing? And then is it the right thing, is it the right character? I take things on those basis and no others," he said.
Asked if he would work again with Depp, who is trying to rebuild his career after an ugly defamation fight with his ex-wife Amber Heard, Burton said: "If the right thing was around, sure."
Burton and Depp previously collaborated on "Edward Scissorhands", "Ed Wood", "Sleepy Hollow", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Corpse Bride", "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Alice in Wonderland" and "Dark Shadows".
