Helena Bonham Carter and Michelle Pfeiffer may join Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Tim Burton’s upcoming vampire flick DARK SHADOWS seems to be shaping up quite nicely. Not only does his have Johnny Depp on board (which will draw a crowd anytime of day) he also has Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcoate and Eva Green, but Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter are circling roles as well. Although they are both still in talks, Pfeiffer would play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard who has not left her mansion for a decade after her husband’s disappearance, and Bonham Carter would play Hoffman who is a specialist in rare blood disorders and befriends Barnabas and may try and cure his thirst for blood. Filming is set to begin sometime in April.
Although this film is based on a soap opera (seriously) it looks like an interesting story and of course it will have the Tim Burton and Johnny Depp flair that we’ve all come to know and love so keep an eye out for in next year.
