Depp Confirms Dark Shadows With Burton
Johnny Depp has been rumored, attached, and in talks for more movies than just about anyone in Hollywood recently. Obviously, there’s no way he’ll ever find time to do all of them. So MTV caught up with Captain Jack, pinned him to the floor, and made him fill out a questionnaire filled with movie titles. Presumably their goal was not only to find out what Johnny Depp is up to, but to prove he can read. Depp put a big YES! Next to the ones he’s definitely involved in.
Only two movies on the list got the yes treatment: Pirates of the Caribbean 4 (of course) and the long rumored movie version of Dark Shadows. He also confirmed that as rumored, Tim Burton will be involved in the Dark Shadows adaptation.
Dark Shadows was a gothic weekday soap opera which aired on ABC during the late 60s and early 70s. The show featured vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies, and an assortment of strange monsters. It was anchored by a vampire named Barnaby Collins who lives in an elaborate mansion full of strange happenings.
Just as interesting as the movies he checked off are the movies he didn’t. Depp didn’t put a “yes” next to Sin City 3, Rex Mundi, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, or The Lone Ranger. No Tonto Johnny? Depp says “The Lone Ranger we’re coming up on.” I guess that means they’re still getting their ducks in a row.
