SDCC ’09: ‘Dark Shadows’ Will Be Tim Burton’s Next Film!

While on the press line for Alice in Wonderland at the San Diego Comic Con, B-D stringer Tim Anderson (Tex) caught up with Tim Burton who tells us (and other outlets) officially that his next movie will in fact be Warner Bros. Pictures adaptation of Dark Shadows, which will star Johnny Depp. 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.
