It’s rare when Tim Burton works outside of his comfort zone, which is why it comes as no surprise that Michelle Pfeiffer is in negotiations to reteam with Tim Burton for Dark Shadows, Warner Bros’ big-screen take on the 1960s gothic vampire TV soap opera starring Johnny Depp. Helena Bonham Carter is also in talks (there’s a shocker).
The movie has an April start and has been casting up, with Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green and Bella Heatcote already on board.
Depp will portray Barnabas Collins, a self-loathing vampire living in a Maine manor who is searching for his lost love.
Pfeiffer would play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the reclusive matriarch of the Collins family which runs the Maine town. The character has not left the mansion since the disappearance of her husband a decade earlier. The last time she worked with Burton was in 1992’s Batman Returns where she memorably played Catwoman.
