Warner Bros. isn’t playing around. They’re moving rapidly on getting Tim Burton’s bigscreen adaptation of the 1960s supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows cast up and behind cameras.
Yesterday it became known that Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate are in talks for lead roles in the film alongside previously committed Johnny Depp.
Deadline adds that Eva Green (Casino Royale) has officially landed the female lead “Angelique”. In the series, she was a powerful witch who was alternately tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins (Depp). The original followed the life of vampire Collins, and his run-ins with various monsters, ghosts, and supernatural creatures.
