X Factor hopeful Misha B has been approached by Oscar-nominated director Tim Burton, whose films include Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland, to star in his next movie.

The film, backed by Walt Disney, will be called Frankenweenie and pays homage to Mary Shelley’s gothic novel Frankenstein. Misha had already agreed to sing on the soundtrack and has now been offered a voice over role. A source said

Tim was at the studios for work when he spotted Misha. He’s a huge fan of hers and spoke to a producer, requesting an audience with the singer. The pair spoke for around 15 minutes, with Tim outlining his plans for Misha, and asking whether she would be interested in recording a track. Misha was blown away and hugely flattered. She agreed immediately and the pair swapped management details. Simon Cowell has been told and has agreed to waive the strict terms on her X Factor contract so Misha can take part.

Well, it looks like all that work Misha’s stylists have put into making her look like it’s Halloween every week, has finally paid off!
