Johnny Depp to cast ‘Dark Shadows’
HollywoodNews.com: “Dark Shadows,” a project that Warner Bros. has been developing for three years for Johnny Depp, is finally moving forward.
Studio has hired screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith to write the screenplay. During the tenure of the feature’s development, Graham King has been attached as producer along with Tim Burton as director reports Variety. Richard Zanuck, Christi Dembrowski and David Kennedy are also onboard as producers.
No release date is reported yet for the film, though it is included as one of the titles in a three-year pact that Warner Bros. has with Imax.
“Dark Shadows” is based on a vampire soap opera TV series which aired on ABC from 1966 through 1971. Depp snapped up film rights to “Dark Shadows” when the show’s producer-director Dan Curtis passed away.
