Writer and Director Discovered for Dark Shadows
Monday, June 2, 2008
It was announced last July that Johnny Depp would be starring in a feature film adaptation of the '60s daytime supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows, which was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. With over 1,225 it can easily be said this is one of the biggest franchises in history. Ever since announced last year, there hasn't been much talk about this big Warner Bros. project... until now. Read on to see who will be directing and writing this highly anticipated film.
Our good friends over at IESB revealed today that John August (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Big Fish) will be penning Dark Shadows for Johnny Depp's Infinitum-Nihil and Graham King's GK Films.
In addition, they also broke the news that Tim Burton is attached to direct the film!
Watch for more news as it comes in.
