Johnny Depp Confirmed in Dark Shadows Adaptation
12.08.09 by BJSprecher
As far back as July 2007, Johnny Depp was rumored to be interested in starring in a theatrical version of the '60s TV series Dark Shadows. In August of this year, Tim Burton, who has directed Depp in several movies, said "the plan" was for him to direct Depp in the Dark Shadows adaptation, but he admitted that it was still in the "early days" of the project.
Now, producer Graham King has confirmed that Depp and Burton will follow up their Alice in Wonderland pairing with Dark Shadows.
We're actually going to shoot that film next September/October with Tim Burton and Johnny.
We've been working on the script a lot, even though [Burton's] working on Alice. We've been given a script. John August wrote the first screenplay. We're making some changes, but the film's going to be in production, as I say, September or October of next year.
