Excellent! We have a feeling he’s really going to make this one something special!
Tim Burton, who has an exhibit launching at the El Lay County Museum of Art right now in honor, opened up about his plans for the film adaptation of Dark Shadows, and thankfully will not be recreating the disaster that was Alice in Wonderland and doing it in 3D, but will instead go for a more dark, ethereal tone to honor the original!
├óΓé¼┼ôI have no plans for [3D]. I loved doing ├óΓé¼┼ôAlice├óΓé¼┬¥ in 3D. Frankeweenie, gonna do that in 3D. There├óΓé¼Γäós people like, ├óΓé¼╦£Everything├óΓé¼Γäós gonna be in 3D,├óΓé¼Γäó or ├óΓé¼╦£I hate 3D!├óΓé¼Γäó I think people should have a choice. I don├óΓé¼Γäót think it should be forced on anybody. At the same time, it├óΓé¼Γäós great, some of it. It├óΓé¼Γäós been hard to kind of come here because I├óΓé¼Γäóm just starting, and it├óΓé¼Γäós a weird tone and it├óΓé¼Γäós a lot of actors and, you know, we├óΓé¼Γäóre not starting with the simple stuff; we├óΓé¼Γäóre sort of getting right in there. You like to kind of sneak up on it a little bit, but this one we just kind of slammed right into it├óΓé¼┬ªI├óΓé¼Γäóm early into it because it├óΓé¼Γäós a funny tone, and that├óΓé¼Γäós part of what the vibe of the show is, and there├óΓé¼Γäós something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, it├óΓé¼Γäós pretty bad. I├óΓé¼Γäóm hoping that it will be ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it├óΓé¼Γäós early days, let├óΓé¼Γäós put it ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I├óΓé¼Γäóm very intrigued by the tone. It├óΓé¼Γäós a real ethereal tone we├óΓé¼Γäóre trying to go for and I don├óΓé¼Γäót know yet.├óΓé¼┬¥
The show is certainly its own level of bizarre, so we imagine it must be difficult to tight-rope the line between camping it up and full-blown parody!
But if anyone can strike the right balance, it’s him!
We want to see him go old-school Burton and bring the GOTHIC big-time this time around! Especially with the amount of talent this flick’s cast has!
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Dark Shadows??
