Things have been awfully quiet on the big screen version of Dark Shadows, but now it seems there’s a bit of light peering through the shroud of fog that’s been laying over Collinwood Mansion.
According to Variety Warner Brothers has signed Seth Grahame-Smith, who penned the novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, to write the theatrical version of the supernatural soap opera.
As reported earlier Johnny Depp is attached to star and produce with Graham King’s GK Flms. Depp had obtained feature rights “Dark Shadows” in 2007 from the estate of Dan Curtis, the producer/director who created “Dark Shadows.” The series aired on weekdays on ABC from 1966 to 1971 with 1,225 episodes.
Look for more as it comes, which could be as early as July 24th during the Dark Shadows panel at Comic-Con, the details of which follow:
