Word is that Johnny Depp’s production house Infinitum-Nihil and GK Films are currently developing a script for the film version of Dark Shadows, the 60’s TV show that centered around the supernatural. We’re talking vampires, ghouls, zombies and ghosts. Depp always had an interest in the character of Barnabas Collins, and will likely play that role in the film.

According to Variety, several production companies have taken a stab at adapting the series, but none were as serious or as successful as what Depp and his team have proposed. Apparently, Tim Burton is on board to direct. Stay tuned!
