Johnny Depp Closing in on Dark Shadows Adaptation
Vampires have never been more popular than they are right now due to the phenomenon known as Twilight and shows like HBO's "True Blood", but the granddaddy of all soapy vamp themed stuff has always been Dan Curtis' "Dark Shadows". A feature film re-imagining of this famed series may be even closer than we thought.
According to the MTV Movie Blog Sam Sarkar, an executive in Depp’s production company, Infinitum-Nihil, hinted that we might be seeing the makings of a new supernatural franchise.
Sarker went on to confirm that Depp is still very much attached to star in the film but it's up in the air whether or not long-time Depp collaborator Tim Burton will step aboard to direct.
"While all the pieces are not yet in place, Dark Shadows is still very much a go at Warner Bros," Sarkar tells MTV. “All I can say is that one is very active. The studio will be making some announcements regarding it pretty soon. Very soon, probably.”
