If you're a goth, and you willingly go to prom, you'd better at least go smoke some cloves in dark shadows afterwards. Or whatever. *Broods*

Actor Thomas McDonell, who will star in Disney's Prom - which I assume will expose prom after-parties as the lame, chastity guarding shams they really are - is now set to join the cast of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. He'll join Johnny Depp, who Burton is surgically attached to, along with Eva Green and Michelle Pfeiffer (Tim Burton: "So... does the catsuit still fit?"). Meanwhile, Michael Sheen and Helena Bonham Carter are in talks to play roles.

The film is based on a British 60s TV series of the same name, with a script by The Mashup Magician (TM) behind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith. (Deadline)
