Dark Shadows Movie

Dark Shadows MovieYet another TV show is going to make it to the big screen. This time it's Dark Shadows, a gothic soap opera that originally aired weekdays on the ABC television network, from June 27, 1966 to April 2, 1971. Dark Shadows featured werewolves, ghosts, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel (both into the past and into the future), and a parallel universe, you go it, it was a hell of a TV show. Director Tim Burton is interested in developing a movie adaptation of this show. And he'd like to enlist Actor Johnny Depp for the role as the vampire Barnabas Collins.

The film was set to start filming Fall 2010, but it's not clear if that's still the plan... What's going to be Tim Burton's next project. Will it be Monsterpocalypse, Dark Shadows or else?

But since Scriptwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has recently been hired to pen the screenplay of Dark Shadows, I guess it means that Director Tim Burton is determined to carry out the project in a not so distant future, even if Dark Shadows wouldn't be his next project.
