Tim Burton Net Worth: Tim Burton is an American film director, film producer, writer, poet and stop motion artist who has a net worth of $140 million dollars. A writer, director, artist, and producer, Tim Burton is most widely recognized for his films including, "Edward Scissorhands", "Batman", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", and "Alice in Wonderland". He is next set to direct a film version of "Dark Shadows". He is married to actress Helena Bonham Carter.

Born Timothy Walter Burton on August 25, 1958, in Burbank, California, US, he made a name for himself directing a plethora of dark, gothic, macabre, quirky horror and fantasy films. Having grew up next door to the American industry, Burton tried to satisfy his thrust for drawing enrolling at California's Institute of Arts in 1976. While in his second year of studies, he entered into the Disney animation program and, two years later, he joined the ranks of Disney animators. The job, which included drawing a total of 129,000 frames each individually drawn for a 90-minute animated film, was not that enjoyable. Plus, Burton's style did not fit, so he ended up being let loose to work on his own projects, including "Vincent" and a live-action short, "Frankenweenie". Shortly after, Burton was hired by Warner Bros to make "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", which turned out to be a success. Only three years later, Burton's vision was enliven in "Beetlejuice" which was another hit, after which Bros let Burton take the helm of the directorship of the eagerly awaited comic adaptation, "Batman". This was the time when Burton used his recently acquired popularity to execute his extremely personal project, "Edward Scissorhands" in 1990. Finally, he had full creative control, from penning the story to producing the final product. It was also the first time for Burton to put Johnny Depp in one of his films, a relationship that has continued until this day. Ever since, he has directed numerous films including, The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Corpse Bride (2005), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Dark Shadows (2012), as well as such blockbusters as Batman Returns (1992), Planet of the Apes (2001), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Alice in Wonderland (2010). Highly productive as he is, Burton has directed as many as 16 films and produced 12 features as of 2012. Nowadays, he is working on Big Eyes, a biographical drama film about Walter Keane and his wife Margaret.
