Tim Burton, Johnny Depp and a new Dark Shadows / Monday, 25 July 2011 at 11:32

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.

  1. Of course Johnny Depp is going to be in the movie. It is a Tim Burton flick after all. He seems almost incapable of making a movie without him. Not to say that all Buton movies start Johnny Depp, but many do.
