michael sheen in talks to join dark shadows

The cast for this movie keeps getting bigger and bigger! Things keep up, and pretty soon we'll have another New Year's Eve on our hands!

Back in February, we were very excited to hear that Michelle Pfeiffer was in negotiations to join Johnny Depp and the cast of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows!

Now, an actor who is no stranger to vampire flicks is in talks to join Dark Shadows, and that man is Twilight's Michael Sheen.

Sources close to the project say that Sheen is in early discussions to play Aro a supporting character in the upcoming vampire flick.

Given his track record, we're thinking Sheen would be a great addition to this film!

…If Dakota Fanning gets offered a role next, though, we'll start to get skeptical…

Would U like to see Michael Sheen in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows? Any other actors you think should be offered roles in the vamp film?

    I love Sheen. and blah blah blah Depp and Burton are getting a little old. My Grandma loves Dark Shadows. I wonder if she will go see this…

    I LOVE Michael Sheen and hope to him in this movie. He is really a talented person and seems to be a decent fellow.

    He is great but Perez Twilight is the last thing he is known for what about all the other movies (Oscar nominated) he is in? You CAN just say Micheal Sheen without mentioning Twilight.

    I'd like to see Tim Burton and Johnny Depp take a couple of years off and find something original to do.

    How could you even compare that lame ass no talent New Years Eve piece of poop to ANYTHING Burton works on??! That's a slap in the face to Timmy!

    Re: jcrhode – I wasn't addressing TB and JD personally. I am referring to all the remakes, sequels, comic books films that all seem to be starring the same over-rated actors. Johnny Depp is beginning to look like a Burton character 24\7. I'm just bitter because of all the hype and those guys are making big bucks off of someone else's originality. I would much rather see a Coen Brothers film over a "thematic" remake. I'm moving on.

    Why the hell does Tim have fangs? He and Johnny are very close friends and should continue working together for a very very long time. I love Tim and Johnny both and can't wait for Dark Shadows.

    They remake the films because not many people nowadays remember the older ones. Before I saw Tim was remaking Dark Shadows, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd, I never heard of them before. He brinngs them back alive with new twists.
