Dark Shadows Set to Shoot in January


Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows is set to roll in January 2011, reports Deadline.

The film has also received a new writer in the form of Seth Grahame-Smith (author of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”), who will rewrite the John August screenplay.

Based on the cult soap opera from the 1960’s, the film stars Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, a popular vampire character who took over the show’s focus after he first appeared one year into the series’ original five year run.
