UPDATE INSIDE: Some bad news for horror fans looking to see Johnny Depp return to the genre as Entertainment Weekly reports that the two of his upcoming projects appear to be on hold. “Two long-discussed Depp projects appear kaput for now: SHANTARAM, based on a novel about a heroin addict’s adventures in India, and the movie version of the ’60s vampire soap Dark Shadows, a childhood favorite of the actor’s.” Warner Bros. Pictures was set to bring SHADOWS to the big screen.
UPDATE: Tim Burton tells the Los Angeles Times, “Oh I don’t know. Take one at time, you know? It’s something I’m interested in of course. Definitely.”
I guess that means there’s a glimmer of hope?
Over 1,225 episodes, “Dark Shadows” was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. The show has a continuing rabid fan base that populates Dark Shadows Festival conventions. Numerous TV revivals of the series and pic adaptations have been attempted over the years but none with as high-wattage a star as Depp.
