Dark Shadows Casts Eva Green


Eva Green has been cast opposite Johnny Depp in the upcoming Dark Shadows, Deadline reports.

The film, which reunites Depp and Burton for the eighth time, is based on the long-running soap opera. With over 1,225 episodes, “Dark Shadows” featured Gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.

Green, best known for her appearance in 2006’s Casino Royale, will play Angelique Bouchard Collins. In the series, Angelique was a witch trapped in a love/hate relationship with Vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp’s character).

The rest of the casting is still being decided with official decisions expected soon, though Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate are also strongly rumored.
