Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate may join Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows

Jackie Earle Haley (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and WATCHMAN) and new up and coming actress Bella Heathcoate (TWYLIGHT ZONES) are in negotiations to join Johnny Depp in the Tim Burton directed film DARK SHADOWS. The film is an adaptation of a television soap opera from the 1960’s about a vampire named Barnabas Collins (Depp) who is in search of his lost love. Haley would play the role of Loomis who was a con artist who tried to steal from Barnabas’ grave only to be attacked by the vampire and become his servant. Heathcoate would play either Victoria Winters who is a governess of the Collins estate, or she will play a waitress who resembles Collins long lost love Josette- we’ll have to wait until she’s confirmed to determine which part she’ll play. DARK SHADOWS is set to hit theaters sometime in 2012.
Johnny Depp as a non-sparkly vampire- move over Robert Pattinson, there’s a new game in town.
