Just as Ryan Seacrest mourns Dick Clark's death, Johnny Depp is remembering a man who greatly influenced his life.

It was such a shame when we had to tell you Jonathan Frid died yesterday. The original Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins passed away peacefully last Friday the 13th (though the news just hit Wednesday).

Upon news of the death, Johnny went to scribe a beautiful statement on the actor's passing.

Ever so eloquently, he says:

Bond Girl Eva Green Lands Lead In Tim Burton's Dark Shadows

eva green joins dark shadows film

Hottest Horror Movie EVER.

Back in November, we spoke about Johnny Depp being cast as vampire Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton/Warner Bros' film adaptation of the 1960's TV series Dark Shadows.

Now, it looks like we've got another HAWT addition to the supernatural cast - Eva Green will play Angelique, a "powerful witch who was alternately tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins."

On a slightly less hot note, A Nightmare On Elm Street's Freddy Krueger Jackie Earle Haley is in negotiations for a major role in the film as well, along with significantly more hot Australian up-and-coming actress Bella Heathcoate.

We're increasingly intrigued by this movie! Keep the updates comin'!

Do U think Eva Green will make a good witch in Dark Shadows?

Johnny Depp Talks His New Vampire Film, Dark Shadows

Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny DeppTwilight

johnny depps movie dark shadows shoots in february

Watch out, Edward Cullen! If anybody can provide the Twilight vampires with competition…it'd be Johnny Depp!

As is pretty much always the case, Depp will team up with director Tim Burton on Dark Shadows, a film adaptation of the 1960s vampire soap opera, which begins shooting this February.

Depp will play 175-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins. Here's what he's had to say about the character:

"Tim and I have tossed the idea for Dark Shadows over the years. It was a TV program in the States in the late 60s and early 70s that I remember watching as a kid. I was obsessed with this character, Barnabas Collins, who was a vampire. I came to find out many years later that when he was a kid, Tim ran home like I did to watch that Gothic soap opera. It was a very strange thing back then. We looked at ways to go, story-wise. We've started to come up with something interesting."

We'll keep our eyes and ears open for more updates on this film.

Between this movie, The Tourist, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Johnny Depp is really on a roll lately although then again, when isn't he?
