Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has dismissed reports Tim Burton is to direct his forthcoming LEWIS CARROLL biopic, insisting news about the filmmaker's involvement is all hearsay. Manson is due to start filming his delayed movie, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll, and believes the media got their reports mixed up when news of Burton making a film based on one of Carroll's novels surfaced earlier this year (07). He says, "I've read that he's making Alice In Wonderland, but my film isn't Alice In Wonderland. It's about the period in which Lewis Carroll was writing it. I've based it all around his diaries."
