Johnny Depp Discusses DARK SHADOWS Film!

In a recent interview with MTV, Johnny discussed his role in the upcoming movie remake of cult favorite Horror soap  “Dark Shadows”.    He will play vampire Barnabas Collins the role originated by actor Jonathan Frid.   The film will be directed by frequent Depp collaborator Tim Burton.   Depp discusses his approach to the part:

For me, even the conversations I’ve had with Tim, what Jonathan Frid did with that character and that classic look he created, I find it very difficult to stray very far from that … I think it’s going to be somewhere in that arena, with maybe just a couple of different touches here and there. There’s something about this vampire coming back after 200 years into this modern world, with a touch of the poetic, with maybe a tendency to maybe wax a little poetic now and again. I have a good feeling about it. But Jonathan Frid’s Barnabas was so special.

All good news to fans of the series.
