Together Again! Johnny Depp & Tim Burton Confirmed To Unite For Dark Shadows Remake

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp


Can't fight a love like theirs!

It has been confirmed that Johnny Depp and Tim Burton will be teaming up to bring the 1960s vampire soap opera, Dark Shadows, to the big screen.

Tim will, of course, be directing the venture, while Johnny's production company is lending its expertise to produce. But Johnny might not be stepping into the famous Barnabas Collins as once predicted.

Though he has long been talking about his DREAM to play the role, the movie is said to be going into production next April, instead of February as was previously suggested. That scheduling seems to collide with another project Johnny has in the works with director Kathryn Bigelow and Tom Hanks. Johnny is in talks to star in the flick, Triple Frontier, along side Hanks about organized crime in Latin America.

Now, he's been given a Sophie's choice: his dream role or a dream collaboration!

Decisions, decisions!

Word is though, if he bows out of Dark Shadows, Mark Wahlberg could be taking his place.

Interesting choice. (Please tell us there is several shirtless scenes in this movie!)

    They work great together and do amazing things. Johnny Depp as a vampire would be dreamy.. *drool* and yes, I love twilight. BUT I'm really tired of hearing about so many new TV shows and movies about vampires. There are just too many! Enough already.

    I have heard about this for years and like Mr Depp have dreamed about this my whole life. I never missed an episode and as an adult I have been patiently waiting. Wahlberg would be perfect as Willie Loomis and while Mr Depp is a Perfect Actor? Have someone gaunt, creepy and that can do a Perfect Jonathan Frid voice. Mr Frid is still alive and well living in Canada and if anyone involved with this would like to see some pictures or hear the voice of a Perfect NEW Barnabas? Contact Perez Hilton and he has my permission to either give my email, or to contact me himself. I would LOVE to read for Mr Depp & Mr Burton, I am simply a 48 year old Father of two handicapped children and would love a shot at this. I don't think they would be sorry. It would be my honor. I also do a good Ben / Professor Stokes. Please take this serious, Dark Shadows was my whole life and I would be thrilled just to have a shot. I have NOT paid my dues like all of the fine actors out there, but raising my kids has kind of been like paying dues of a different sort. I would love to be able to do something like this to leave behind for them to see when they get older.

    I'm old like Johnny-I can vaguely remember the original Dark Shadows-spooked a preschooler to death! Loved it! And I can' wait to see Johnny in Tim's version. :)
