Tim Burton’s Next is Dark Shadows ?


Collider.com talked to producer Richard D. Zanuck, who says that director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are making Dark Shadows next summer and that it’s Tim’s next project after Alice in Wonderland.

The film, written by John August, is based on the cult ’60s supernatural TV show created by Dan Curtis. Johnny Depp would play Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series.

With over 1,225 episodes, “Dark Shadows” was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap-opera that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies that ran from 1966 – 1971 and featured actor Jonathan Frid as Collins.
