There has been talk for a long time about Johnny Depp taking up the role of the dark and sexy vampire Barnabus Collins. Johnny has said many times in interviews that he would run home to watch the 1966-1971 gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows and that he looked forward to doing this remake with friend and long time director, Tim Burton.
Fans have waited and speculated and now finally there is news- filming is to start in February. It appears that with Tim Burton taking on Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and Johnny Depp’s filming on multiple other projects there might be scheduling difficulties but for now this is the news.
So, picture the handsome Depp playing the sensual and dangerous Collins. It will be so exciting and hopefully a very good remake and not campy.
Dark Shadows has a series, revival series, and two feature movies entitled House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows. This will be the fifth try at the show and hopefully a very good one.
The Dark Shadows DVD sets, movies, books, and comics are available to Lexington fans at Amazon.com
