Warner Bros. is finally ramping up a feature version of the supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows, set up with Johnny Depp and Graham King’s GK Flms. The studio’s signed Seth Grahame-Smith, who penned the novel “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” to deliver the live-action adaptation! Depp is only attached as a producer at this point (boo!). Grahame-Smith’s already attached to adapt Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov at Universal. The history-horror hybrid book, which details Lincoln’s secret battle with the undead, hit shelves in March and portrays the 16th president as a highly trained vampire assassin. Depp had obtained feature rights “Dark Shadows” in 2007 from the estate of Dan Curtis, the producer/director who created “Dark Shadows.” The series aired on weekdays on ABC from 1966 to 1971 with 1,225 episodes and featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
