Acclaimed filmmaker Tim Burton brings to life the true and hilarious story of Ed Wood (Johnny Depp), the wackiest and worst movie director of all time. When Ed Wood pulls together his ragtag band, including has-been horror star Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau), a cross-dressing actor named Bunny (Bill Murray) and Ed's no-talent girlfriend (Sarah Jessica Parker), bad moviemaking and hilarious hijinx follow! Ed Wood refuses to let minor setbacks like unfinished scenes, terrible reviews or hostile studio executives get in his way as he pursues his dreams of making it big in Hollywood!
