Johnny Depp will again appear as Captain Jack Sparrow this summer in the fourth installment in the Pirates franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but plenty of work is being done on the other Depp movies that will follow.
Depp is set to reunite with director Tim Burton next month for Dark Shadows, an adaptation of the gothic soap opera from the 1960s. The cast already includes Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Hayley, and Bella Heathcoate. In addition, Deadline reports that actor Thomas McDonell (Prom) will play the younger version of Depp's character, Barnabas Collins. The report also says that Michael Sheen is in early discussions to play Roger, the conniving brother of Pfeiffer's character. updates on The Rum Diary and The Thin Man >>
