A true bounty of goods await those who have a few extra dollars to spend on DVDs this week what with Grace, Deadgirl, and (can you believe it?) Phantasm II finally hitting the home market, An American Werewolf in London and Army of Darkness bowing on Blu-ray, and NBC's Fear Itself anthology series getting released in its entirety. And that's just the beginning!
Is there another filmmaker working whose tackled more revisionist projects? It seems like everything this guy does lately is an updated version of an older movie, TV show or piece of literature. So, during Comic Con, Burton announced his next project, which really comes as no surprise.

You know, you can find the craziest things in Japan. A plethora of Godzilla figues, video games based around spanking, great sushi, and even scans of Japanese Warner Bros. press schedules which apparently have the next Burton/Depp collaboration on Dark Shadows listed for a winter of 2010 release.
Vampires have never been more popular than they are right now due to the phenomenon known as Twilight and shows like HBO's "True Blood", but the granddaddy of all soapy vamp themed stuff has always been Dan Curtis' "Dark Shadows".

Johnny Depp is one busy guy these days! Along with playing the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland and committing to yet another Pirates film, according to Variety, his production company Infinitum Nihil has acquired screen rights to the Nick Tosches novel In the Hand of Dante.
I wonder if there will come a time where Tim Burton and Johnny Depp just admit they’re the same person. I know it’s true, I’ve seen Burton shape-shift into Depp and vice versa, but the public at large just calls me “crazy”. What's my point? Oh, right, the long-proposed Dark Shadows movie...
It's been almost a year since it was first announced that Johnny Depp was working on bringing the 1960's supernatural soap opera "Dark Shadows" to the big screen, and since that announcement all has been very quiet about the project.
