Last November, it was reported that Johnny Depp would start shooting Dark Shadows with director Tim Burton last month. Close enough.
Warner Bros. announced shooting has begun in England on the project, which is an adaptation of a Gothic soap opera created by Dan Curtis that ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971 and centered around vampire Barnabas Collins (Depp), a role originally played by Jonathan Frid. Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies mash-up novel, wrote the script for the movie based on a story by John August and Grahame-Smith.
The Warner Bros. announcement also included a movie synopsis, giving those who remember the show the first chance to see how the adaptation will compare. read the detailed synopsis >> Posted 05.19.11 by Ryan
