A New Somewhat Lighter Photo of Johnny Depp in 'Dark Shadows'
Between the bloody hand first look and a slightly menacing photo featuring Johnny Depp intimidating Michelle Pfeiffer, the adaptation of Dark Shadows from Tim Burton looks to be a fairly dark venture. However, it's been said that there's a strange kind of humor to the film, and that tone is somewhat prevalent in a new photo of Depp as the vampire Barnabas Collins, and while he still doesn't look all that friendly, it's not exactly terrifying either. Frankly, I don't think anyone knows what to expect from this film, but with such a spectacular cast including Chloe Moretz and of course Helena Bonham Carter, I hope it works out.
Based on the 1960's gothic daytime serial with vampires, ghosts, ghouls, zombies, werewolves, parallel universes and time-paradoxes, Tim Burton is directing this adaptation of Dark Shadows written by author turned screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). The film marks yet another collaboration between Burton and actor Johnny Depp, playing vampire Barnabas Collins, and the filmmaker's wife Helena Bonham Carter. The rest of the cast includes Chloe Moretz (Let Me In), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Michelle Pfeiffer (Stardust) and more. Warner Bros. is bringing Dark Shadows to theaters everywhere on May 11th, 2012. Looking good?
