Johnny Depp To Resurrect Goth Vampire Pic "Dark Shadows"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on July 30, 2007 4:50 PM |

Johnny DeppJohnny Depp seems ready to sink his teeth in another ecentric role - that of the over-the-top goth vampire Barnabas Collins in "Dark Shadows". The 1960s supernaturual soap opera featured vampires, ghosts, warlocks, werewolves, wierd little kids, kinky love, eery music, time travel, dark mansions, sea and fog, campy dialogue and Victorian costumes. With Johnny wearing the fangs - this is gonna be great!

Dark Shadows was a success in the 60s and 70s and continues to have a cult following; according to Variety there have been many attempted adaptations of the hit show but none as serious as what Depp and his production company have done - buy the film rights.

Depp has said in interviews that he has always been obsessed with Dark Shadows and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire uncle-patriarch of the Collins family. The role was originally played by Jonathan Frid.
