    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.

    My mom got me started watching this when I was younger, then it was on Scifi channel for awhile. With this combination it should be a good movie.

    It will be strange to see Depp in a Burton flick.

    The original series was cool, kind of a 'Blood Opera' as opposed to a soap opera.

    A Stake Driven Through Depp's Dark Shadows
    Source:Entertainment Weekly October 16, 2008

    The return of Barnabas Collins will have to wait another day. Here's an update from the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly concerning Johnny Depp's upcoming slate:

    Two long discussed Depp projects appear kaput for now: Shantarum, based on a novel about a heroin addict's adventures in India, and the movie version of the 60's vampire soap Dark Shadows, a childhood favorite of the actor's.

    Depp became involved in Dark Shadows in 2007 when his production outfit Infinitim-Nihil teamed with Warner Bros. to do an update. Over the summer it was reported writer John August was writing the script.

    I had a feeling with everything else Depp has in the hopper that this might be a casualty.
