Johnny Depp and Tim Burton teams up again for Dark Shadows

Johnny Depp and Tim Burton team up for 60s show Dark Shadows.


Johnny Depp has been getting a lot of great roles in the last couple of years. He feels like on a quest of getting some elusive Oscar. Here is another movie that will surely not get him any nods. But it will be something to look at for its take on the TV series.

Dark Shadows has been something in the minds of both Johnny Depp and Tim Burton for sometime now. It is a 60’s vampire soap opera. The shooting for the film is expected to start somewhere in September. So this will be the time for all the rewrites of the script and stuff.

The screenplay is written by John August but plans to be in production only by fall. Burton seems to disagree to all this rumors about the film. Some are saying this going to be making the Twilight look bad sardines.

Dark Shadows ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971. The daytime soap didn’t introduce signature character Barnabas Collins until a year into the run; along with Collins the show became famous for introducing many supernatural elements to the already well established daytime soap formula.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
