SDCC 09: Tim Burton Tackles Dark Shadows





San Diego Comic-Con 2009Is 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.

Once he's finished up with Alice in Wonderland, Burton will bring the classic Dan Curtis television series, Dark Shadows to the big screen. It should surprise none of you that Johnny Depp is already attached to play Barnabas Collins, the vampiric head of the family.

Dark Shadows continues to have a strong following to this day. With a short-lived reincarnation having gone over like a led balloon in the 90s, Burton is looking to put a big screen spin on the cult TV series.
