While I’m getting heartily sick of vampires popping up all over, this sounds to me like a possible winner. Tim Burton’s adaptation of the 1960s TV gothic soap opera Dark Shadows is going ahead with Johnny Depp playing vampire Barnabas Collins (originally played by Jonathan Frid). Seth Grahame Smith (P and P and Zombies) will be writing the script.
I guess with Depp playing Barnabas, the character will be a little smoothed out around the edges.
