"Wait, Sweeney Todd is about WHAT???"

Warner Brothers is getting a little MPAA-anxiety over the rushes of Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd film, at least according to Page Six.

The suits at Warner Bros. "became a tad squeamish when they viewed grisly footage of blood splashing across the set as Depp slits the throats of his customers," London's Daily Mail reports. In another scene that has the studio on edge, a 10-year-old boy feeds human body parts into a meat grinder to make meat pies.
Uh, isn't that what the show is about???

Well, of course, everything in the stage version was more or less implied, slit throats notwithstanding...
