Michael Sheen may join Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Tim Burton‘s next directorial effort, the vampire flick DARK SHADOWS, already has a stellar cast that includes: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earl Haley, Michelle Pfeiffer and Bella Heathcoate and he may add one more star to the roster. Michael Sheen (THE QUEEN, TRON: LEGACY and TWILIGHT:BREAKING DAWN: PART 1 & 2) Is in talks to join the cast in a supporting role that has yet to be confirmed. He’s worked with Burton before on ALICE IN WONDERLAND (he was voice behind the White Rabbit) so it seems a very likely pairing, we just need to see if he likes the script and wants to do another vampire centered film.
DARK SHADOWS follows a vampire named Barnabas Collins (Depp) who is in search of his lost love. He still resides on the grounds of his estate that is run by Elizabeth Collins (Pfeiffer) with a governess named Victoria Winters (Heathcoate). There is a witch who is madly in love with Collins (Green), a con-artist who is the vampires slave (Earl Haley) and a specialist in rare blood disorders and psychologist (Bonham Carter)- quite an interesting set of characters, don’t you think? I’ll be interested to see this on the screen.
