Eva Green will join Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Tim Burton’s next horror film seems to be getting quite a lot of press recently. Today we’re learning that Eva Green (CASINO ROYALE) has just been cast to star opposite Johnny Depp as the female lead in the vampire film DARK SHADOWS. Green will take on the role of Angelique, a witch who constantly finds herself either infatuated or annoyed by Barnabas Collins (Depp). Yesterday we reported that Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate were both up for parts as well and we’ll keep you posted when (and if) they sign on. Still no word on when production will begin, but I’m guessing we’re looking at this summer after all the promotions for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ON STRANGER TIDES are completed.
I’m glad Eva Green is back in the saddle. In my opinion, she was the best part of CASINO ROYALE and I’m surprised that she wasn’t in more films after that success.
