Tim Burton is a director who never goes out of style. He has to his credit works as legendary as ‘Batman’, ‘Bitelchus’, ‘Eduardo Scissorhands’, ‘Sleepy Hollow’ (of which Paramount is in charge of making a remake), ‘Sweeney Todd, the diabolical barber of the street Fleet’ or ‘The Corpse Bride’, among many others. Currently, he is at the helm of ‘Wednesday’, the new Netflix series that will focus on the character of Wednesday from ‘The Addams Family’, played by Jenna Ortega. Given this incredible trajectory, José Luis Martínez-Almedia, Mayor of the Spanish capital, will appoint Tim Burton as the first Ambassador of Madridaccording to El Español.
Recently created, the title was incorporated into the regulation of honorary distinctions of the City Council in the reform approved last April, with the aim of “distinguish people who have stood out for their activities or services abroad for the benefit of the city of Madrid“. According to the new rule, only a maximum of three Ambassador titles could be awarded each year, which would be awarded in a solemn act.
According to sources close to the City Council, the appointment of Tim Burton, “artist of stature and world fame”as Ambassador of the capital “strengthens the image of Madrid” as well as “distinguishes the great film director”. “Tim Burton is famous for the gothic aesthetic of his films”is about “a visual genius unparalleled among directors of his generation”with plenty of capacity to “bring teenagers and young people from all over the world to cinemas”sources from the consistory have declared.
