Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp is hoping to take his favorite childhood television show Dark Shadows to the big screen. Depp and director Tim Burton, hope to turn the hit Vampire thriller 60s series, about a man with a vampire curse, into a movie franchise. The actor says, "I was obsessed with (lead character) Barnabas Collins. I have photographs of me holding Barnabas Collins’ posters when I was five or six." Burton, who has worked with Depp on hit movies Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is admitting work is already under way. The director says, "That’s the plan. There was something very weird about (Dark Shadows), it had the weirdest vibe to it. I’m sort of intrigued about that vibe. It’s early days on it, but I’m excited about it."

Franchise ? Where did you dream up it was going to be a franchise ?
That is what Dark Shadows always was. Makes sense that the new versions would be too..
