ON

IESB.net has learned, via an interview with director Peter Segal, that the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and “Corpse Bride” team of Tim Burton, John August and Johnny Depp are reuniting for Dark Shadows.

Burton will reportedly direct the Warner Bros. feature based on the ’60s supernatural TV show from a script by August. Johnny Depp’s Infinitum-Nihil and GK Films are producing and Depp has had interest in playing Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

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.
