Director Tim Burton and Actor Johnny Depp are teaming up for the movie adaptation of Dark Shadows, the classic 1960s gothic TV soap opera. Besides the vampire Barnabas Collins, the original Dark Shadows show featured werewolves, ghosts, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel (both into the past and into the future), and a parallel universe.
Tim Burton’s Dark Shadow is said to include vampires, but no clue yet if the film will reunite all the monsters.
Filming of the Dark Shadows movie is set to start in Fall 2010. So the film will probably be released in 2011.
