Dark Shadows

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton reunite for the ninth time on Dark Shadows, the supernatural vampire story based on the cult 1966-1971 gothic soap opera . Depp will play Barnabas Collins, a rich playboy who is turned into a vampire and loses his estate. The cast will feature Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Chloe Moretz. Burton films are typically filled with his trademark creative style and sound. He loves the macabre and Dark Shadows seems to be set in the same kind of world that made Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, and Batman so memorable. The adult subject matter and the presence of Depp in the lead points to a return to form for Burton. Although we may be even more impressed with his other 2012 release: the remake of his own film, Frankenweenie .
