Three Warner Bros movies got release dates, so mark your calendars. Or just let the incessant marketing next year remind you. Either way works.

Dark Shadows, a gothy new Tim Burton / Johnny Depp love-fest, opens May 11, 2012. Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Helena Bonham Carter also star in this 60′s cult TV show turned feature film. Get ready to see vampires, ghosts and ghouls during the scariest time of the year: mid-May. oooOOOooo.

Rivals, starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as two guys who I’m sure will not being competing against one another, opens Aug. 10, 2012. It’s the story of two rival political candidates, directed by Jay Roach. I would have hoped they’d be running together on the Frat Party ticket. Ah well.

However, before all that, you and Dwayne Johnson are going on a journey together. Specifically, a Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 3D journey. Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson and Vanessa Hudgens will be along for your crazy ride come Jan. 27, 2012. It’s sure to be a journey… into pure cinematic genius. (Deadline)

Tim Burton Lures Chloe Moretz To ‘Dark Shadows’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tim-burton-lures-chloe-moretz-to-dark-shadows/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tim-burton-lures-chloe-moretz-to-dark-shadows/#comments Fri, 01 Apr 2011 12:25:12 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204940 She's being fitted for a corset as I type this.

Tim Burton is busy luring more children to the set of Dark Shadows. More specifically, he’s busy luring them from the set of The Invention On Hugo Cabret. First, Gulliver McGrath signed on to be creeped out by the exceptionally pale clique of Burton, Johnny Depp, and Helena Bonham Carter. Now Kick Ass‘s Hit Girl, Chloe Moretz has signed as well.

Moretz will play Carolyn. She’s the daughter of Michelle Pfeiffer‘s Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, who is the reclusive matriarch of the Collins clan and owner of the Collinwood mansion where the story is set. Moretz should fit in nicely on set considering her resume is already heavy with genre films. She’s used to be bloodied up between Kick Ass, Let Me In, and the tween gladiator battles she likely had to win to earn so much success at such a young age. (Deadline)

Thomas McDonell To Loiter In ‘Dark Shadows’ After ‘Prom’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thomas-mcdonell-to-loiter-in-dark-shadows-after-prom/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/thomas-mcdonell-to-loiter-in-dark-shadows-after-prom/#comments Tue, 29 Mar 2011 02:16:53 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204147 Actor Thomas McDonell, who will star in Disney's 'Prom', is hijacking the limo and driving it into Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows'.

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)

Michael Sheen (No Relation) In Talks For ‘Dark Shadows’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michael-sheen-no-relation-in-talks-for-dark-shadows/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michael-sheen-no-relation-in-talks-for-dark-shadows/#comments Sat, 26 Mar 2011 01:10:43 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203820 Tim Burton is in talks with actor Michael Sheen ('New Moon', 'Tron: Legacy') to join the 'Dark Shadows' ensemble. Another Sheen is winning for a change.

There’s another Sheen in the news, but he’s not related to the tiger blood/winning/crazy one.

Director Tim Burton is in talks with actor Michael Sheen (Twilight: New Moon, Tron: Legacy) to join the Dark Shadows ensemble. The adaptation of the 60s British TV series stars Johnny Depp (as required by Burton Law), Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter. Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) wrote the script, which makes sense. Werewolves, ghosts, vampires and time-travel all play a part in the Dark Shadows universe, so Grahame-Smith didn’t even have to mash those elements into it. It’s like the mashing up was done for him.

The story centers around a vampire, Barnabas Collins, who searches for Josette, his lost love. No word yet on who Sheen would play. The film is expected to open in 2012. (The Playlist)

Michelle Pfeiffer And Helena Bonham Carter Might Get To Hang Out With Tim Burton Again http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michelle-pfeiffer-and-helena-bonham-carter-might-get-to-hang-out-with-tim-burton-again/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/michelle-pfeiffer-and-helena-bonham-carter-might-get-to-hang-out-with-tim-burton-again/#comments Tue, 15 Feb 2011 18:29:07 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26992 Michelle Pfeiffer must be jealous of Johnny Depp.

During Batman Returns, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tim Burton got to be such good friends, it’s a shame they haven’ hung out since then, you know? Well, that might be about to change, with Pfeiffer in talks to star in Burton’s upcoming Dark Shadows, based on the 60s vampire soap of the same name. Burton also is interested in casting Helena Bonham Carter, who he also must want to hang out with. The movie also stars Johnny Depp, Jackie Earle Haley, and Eva Green:

“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.”

“Reclusive matriarch”? Don’t these people know that vampires are supposed to be sexy now? I’d be hard-pressed to come up with a less sexy phrase than “reclusive matriarch.” “Cronenbergian,” maybe. (via The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline)

Katherine Heigl To Serve As Sub-Halle Berry http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/katherine-heigl-to-serve-as-sub-halle-berry/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/katherine-heigl-to-serve-as-sub-halle-berry/#comments Mon, 31 Jan 2011 18:34:13 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=23465 Halle Berry is being replaced by America's sweetheart Katherine Heigl (in a movie, not in life).

The world has been breathlessly awaiting the romantic pair of Halle Berry and Jon Bon Jovi in the upcoming film New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately for the world (and fortunately for Halle Berry, hey-o!), Halle Berry is being replaced by America’s sweetheart Katherine Heigl (maybe she can also star in a parody “Nude Year’s Eve“).

Apparently, Heigl just adopted some poor kid and was looking for a project that wouldn’t require a huge time commitment. New Year’s Eve fits the bill, since as a follow up to Garry Marshall’s surprise hit Valentine’s Day it’s a big ensemble piece. Just a couple pinches of Heigl, as opposed to a whole dish. Dunno why I went with a food metaphor but whatever. New Year’s Eve will also star (deep breath) Robert De Niro, Sofia Vergara, Russell Peters, Hilary Swank, Ice Cube, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Abigail Breslin, Seth Meyers, Jessica Biel and Til Schweiger. (via Deadline)

Casting News For Michelle Pfeiffer, The Limey on ‘Gossip Girl’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-news-for-michelle-pfeiffer-the-limey-on-gossip-girl/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-news-for-michelle-pfeiffer-the-limey-on-gossip-girl/#comments Tue, 11 Jan 2011 03:18:47 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=15208 Pfeiffer catwalks into Welcome To People, while Ed Westwick gossips as J. Edgar Hoover's biographer.

Here’s some casting news you can use. Or don’t use it. Up to you, man!

Michelle Pfeiffer, who’ll always be remem-purrrrrrred for her role as Lamia in 2007′s Stardust, was cast in the film Welcome To People. She’ll join Chris Pine, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks in a movie about a man (Pine) whose father dies. When he returns home, he uncovers a family secret. And the secret is… wait, I don’t know. The film starts shooting next week, so we’ve got a ways to wait.

Meanwhile, I’ve never seen a full episode of “Gossip Girl,” but there’s a British dude on it named Ed Westwick. So, yeah, that guy’s got a major supporting role in a cool sounding bio pic called J. Edgar, about the life of power-grabbing, cross-dressing FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Hoover, and Westwick plays the straight-laced FBI agent who ends up writing his biography. DiCaprio gave an awesome performance in Catch Me If You Can, so you don’t need to tap our phones to know we’re intrigued by this project. (Deadline)
