Will Johnny Depp play vampire Barnabas Collins in "Dark Shadows"?
Depp as Vamp? Tim Burton Probes Dark Shadows


Leave it to director Tim Burton to put the creepiest possible spin on cheeseball mid-century soap opera Dark Shadows.

The daytime drama, which hypnotized TV viewers between 1966 and 1971 with story lines peopled by zombies, vampires and warlocks, is being adapted for the big screen by frequent Burton collaborator John August (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Big Fish).

August is bouncing back and forth between Shadows and Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam. According to IESB.net's interview with Get Smart director Peter Segal, who is set to helm Shazam, August is writing Dark Shadows for Burton.

So, will Johnny Depp play alpha vampire Barnabas Collins? No word yet. But he previously investigated Headless Horseman decapitations in Burton's Sleepy Hollow and cut throats with relish in their most recent collaboration, Sweeney Todd, so we're thinking Depp should be able to sink his teeth into Dark Shadows, no problem.

I used to love Dark Shadows. All of us art department students headed home everyday in time to catch Dark Shadows. LOL!

 Quoting: Unforgiven


from wikipedia

"Dark Shadows was distinguished by its vividly melodramatic performances, atmospheric interiors, memorable story lines and an unusually adventurous music score. Now regarded as somewhat of a camp classic, it continues to enjoy intense cult status among its followers. Director Tim Burton and pop icon Madonna have both gone on record as fans of the series. As a child Johnny Depp was so obsessed with Barnabas Collins that he wanted to be him"

So things look good for Depp playing the role!!

Re: Will Johnny Depp play vampire Barnabas Collins in "Dark Shadows"?
I LOVED Dark Shadows in the 60's and the Sci-fi channel had it on in the am a couple of years ago and as I was out of work I was able to see it all over again. They did make another version about 10 or so years ago but they got so far and that was the end of it. I had the hots for Barnabas as well and all of us (I was 13 at the time) in school wanted a Barnabas Collins ring (remember that big one with the red stone). I don't know how you ppl feel but it was more spooky in black and white than in color. We didn't get a color TV until the early 70's,lol
I think Johnny Depp would be a good Barnabas but he has to get the hair right, you remember brushed to the side with the little "points" on his forehead 8^D
:to you older folk here, I sure dated myself with the b/w tv, hehehe. don't even think the kids today have even seen one: :5a:

Tim Burton is such a tool. He's way too obsessed with "dark" gothic bullshit. Is he capable of doing virtually anything else, other than "vampire" undead zombie gothic nonsense with "creepy" gothic architecture? Is he not capable of doing anything else?
