Rumor has it today that we'll be getting more spooky, dark delight from the brilliantly talented duo Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. Depp is reportedly producing and possibly starring as Barnabas Collins in a film adaptation of the 1960s "daytime supernatural soap opera" Dark Shadows. Tim Burton is attached to direct and screenwriter John August (a frequent Burton collaborator) will be brought in to write the script.
So far, the basic IMDB description of the movie version is this: "A gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts."
I can't wait to hear more about the plot and find out which role Helena Bonham Carter will play! I just love these guys.
