Adapted from 1960s TV show 'Dark Shadows', the upcoming flick is directed by 'Alice in Wonderland' director Tim Burton.
Michelle Pfeiffer is in talks to reteam with moviemaker Tim Burton for his movie adaptation of 1960s TV show "Dark Shadows". The actress played "Catwoman" in Burton's 1992 film "Batman Returns" and now she's considering playing Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the matriarch of a vampire family, opposite the filmmaker's regular collaborator Johnny Depp.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bond girl Eva Green and Jackie Earle Haley have signed up for roles and Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter is also expected to take the part of a psychologist in the film.
In another casting news, John Turturro and Eddie Izzard have landed new roles in the "Cars" sequel. "O Brother, Where Art Thou" star Turturro will voice Italian race car Francesco Bernoulli, while British comedian Izzard will portray former oil baron Miles Axlerod.
The two additions were confirmed by "Cars 2" director John Lasseter on Monday, February 14. Lasseter also revealed the sequel would be "a spy movie". Other new characters in the film, which is scheduled for a June release, include superspy Holley Shiftwell, voiced by British actress Emily Mortimer.
