Dark Shadows

Even more vampires are in the news today, as it’s being reported that after Alice in Wonderland, director Tim Burton will next tackle Dark Shadows with his constant, Johnny Depp. The proposed remake of the 1966 daytime soap opera had been talked about plenty, but it was never clear when Depp and Burton would get together for it. As you might imagine, a show that featured vampires, werewolves, ghosts, monsters, zombies, time travel, and other wild and scary elements was a bit edgy for 1960s television, let alone daytime TV. Depp will play a vampire named Barnabas Collins

Producer Graham King was out promoting The Young Victoria recently, and in a group interview, he made the announcement.

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 he’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.

I’m curious to see which direction they go in with this. Depp and Burton have something of a pattern in their collaborations in the sense that they seem to enjoy alternating from family fantasy pictures (Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland) over to the much more adult-aimed films (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street). So do they use the horror content of Dark Shadows to go all-out, or do they stay closer to its daytime TV origins?
