Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer take cues from Tim Burton in new photos from Dark Shadows
Posted by: Zack Bruce
The vampire trend is still ongoing. I don’t mind as long as those movies don’t have anything to do with romance or sparkling. Tim Burton’s big screen adaptation of DARK SHADOWS will probably have a hint of romance though but not between high schoolers.
Actually the movie will be fueled by the revenge of a scorned woman who turns out to be a powerful witch. The story is about Barnabas Collins (Depp), who was transformed into a vampire by a jilted lover (Eva Green’s witch Angelique) way back in the 1700s and buried. He’s just been dug up, and attempts to reintegrate with his descendants, led by Michelle Pfeiffer’s Elizabeth and Jonny Lee Miller’s Roger – despite the fact that Angelique is still around and still not in a forgiving mood.
In these new production photos, we get to see Depp, Pfeiffer, Miller, and Burton all on the set of the film. Depp looks a little more creepy than the original Barnabas Collins played by Jonathan Frid. Check out those claws.
