Depp and Burton are the next Sad Keanus.
The days of nobod knowing what the hell Tim Burton is directing next have come to an end. Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp (and probably Helena Bonham Carter) will be inked in next to sketches of mawkish bats in the director’s day planner. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith is taking over scripting duties from long-time Burton collaborater John August, to adapt the spooky 1960’s soap opera. Filming begins in February with Johnny Depp playing the vampire Barnabas Collins. We’ll keep you updated on which goofy wig he’ll end up in this time. (Deadline)
