Director and Writer Named for Depp's DARK SHADOWS!
Written by Robert Sanchez
Monday, 02 June 2008

DARK SHADOWS is in development over at Johnny Depp's Infinitum-Nihil and Graham King's GK Films along with Warner Bros. It is a feature based on the '60s daytime supernatural soap opera.

While no director, writer or cast has yet been announced, the film is based on over 1,225 episodes of the television series dating from 1966 to 1971. Dark Shadows was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.

This weekend, the IESB exclusively learned the names of the people set to bring this project to life.

While interviewing GET SMART director Peter Segal this past weekend in Beverly Hills, he spoke briefly about writer John August. Segal says August, who is writing BILLY BATSON AND THE LEGEND OF SHAZAM for Segal over at WB, is jumping back and forth between Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS and his SHAZAM script trying to work on both films at the same time due to a back log of work after the writers' strike earlier this year.

So, while we can't confirm the rumors of Depp starring as Barnabus Collins in DARK SHADOWS, the IESB has confirmed that TIM BURTON is attached to direct and JOHN AUGUST has been brought in to write the adaptation for the film.

Stay tuned to the IESB for further updates!

Holy Cow! I used to watch the Dark Shadows series with Ben Cross when I was a little. My dad taped several of the episodes and I actually still watch them now once in a while. Oooh! I want to see this Very Happy

I saw episodes from time to time. Never understood it, but there were vampires and monsters and stuff, so I pretended to like it. Still not sure what went on in the show.
