Tim Burton Talks Dark Shadows – with Johnny Depp, Of Course!


As we first told you about back in December…

Tim Burton is jumping on the vampire bandwagon and announced himself – officially – that his next project would be a remake of the 60’s cult classic Dark Shadows. The story follows an ancient 175-year-old vampire named Barnabas Collins, who pines away for a lost love.

And who will be playing this iconic vampire? We’ll give you one guess…Johnny Depp. Who else is even in Tim Burton films?

Though the production might have to wait until Johnny finishes the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, they both couldn’t be thrilled more about their eighth collaboration.

Johnny says: “I was obsessed with Barnabas Collins. I have photographs of me holding Barnabas Collins posters when I was five or six.”

We’re going to suppose that Helena Bonham Carter will be in it as well, just because, you know, it’s a Tim Burton movie.

Does this flick idea intrigue U?
