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.
Then over the weekend, IESB got to chatting with Get Smart director Peter Segal, who mentioned that writer John August is penning another film for him while dividing his time with Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows. This is the first I’ve heard of Burton being attached to the film, as well, but it’s not like this should be surprising; Burton and Depp are like chocolate and peanut butter at this point.
Of course it’s all rumors until we hear otherwise, but might as well get us fans talking about a potential Dark Shadows film with Depp & Burton and just how cool it could be now, right? Just imagine all those monsters throughout the show’s history crammed into a film? Could be really, really cool, indeed.
Wonder how Burton would do with monsters in the Dread Central forums!
