Johnny Depp Enters Dark Shadows


Warner Bros. is teaming with Johnny Depp’s Infinitum-Nihil and Graham King’s GK Films to develop a feature based on the ’60s supernatural TV show “Dark Shadows.”

According to Variety, Depp has always been obsessed with “Dark Shadows” and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series. The role was originated by Jonathan Frid.

Over 1,225 episodes, “Dark Shadows” was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
