The acclaimed actor and notable director of "Sweeney Todd" are said to be going to team up once again in another dark drama movie 'Dark Shadows'.
Together, Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton have brought to the silver screen many remarkable and haunting feature films, including "Edward Scissorhands", "Sleepy Hollow" and "Sweeney Todd", and it seems that they may be on the path to once again collaborate for another movie. Recently, an interesting news surfaces suggesting that the two possibly are going to tackle a horror film project "Dark Shadows".
Reports surrounding the 1960's Gothic soap opera-adapted movie speculated that the horror film will have Depp as the producer through his Infinitum-Nihil production house. Aside from producing the project, the 44-year-old actor allegedly is also eyeing on the part of Barnabas Collins. Still, the truth about those rumors remains questionable. However, if the speculations are true, Depp may end up teaming up again with Burton who is attached to direct the movie.
Furthermore, according to "Get Smart" director Peter Segal, writer John August who has worked with both Burton and Depp in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Corpse Bride" will be providing the film's script. "Dark Shadows" itself will be based on the episodes of the television series that features spooky creatures, including vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
