It’s been a really long time since the forever hot Michelle Pfeiffer worked with director Tim Burton, but it looks like that is about to totally change!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Pfeiffer is in negotiations to re-team with Tim Burton for Dark Shadows, Warner Bros’ big-screen take on the 1960s Gothic vampire TV soap opera starring Johnny Depp.
The movie has an April start and has been casting up with Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green, and Bella Heathcote already on board. Depp will portray Barnabas Collins, a self-loathing vampire living in a Maine manor who is searching for his lost love.
Pfeiffer would play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the reclusive matriarch of the Collins family which runs the Maine town. The character has not left the mansion since the disappearance of her husband a decade earlier.
UPDATE: According to Deadline while talks haven’t begun yet…Helena Bonham Carter is in line to play Dr. Julia Hoffman. Bonham Carter, who is Oscar nominated for The King’s Speech and just won the BAFTA, is likely to play Hoffman, a specialist in psychology and rare blood disorders who moves into Collinwood. While she initially is a threat to the vampire Barnabas, she eventually becomes his ally, who might be able to cure him of his thirst for blood. Hoffman was played in the series by Grayson Hall.
Look for more soon!
