Dark Shadows: 2012

Posted on 05 February 2012 by Paul

Dark Shadows, a gothic soap opera that aired on ABC from June 27, 1966 to April 2, 1971, is once again heading to the big screen. The series featured werewolves, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel, and a parallel universe but most importantly, vampire Barnabas Collins played by Jonathan Frid.
 
The new reincarnation directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 11, 2012 in both conventional and IMAX theaters. Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter also star.
 

Warner Brothers acquired the film rights to the franchise in July 2007 following the death of creator Dan Curtis. After the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, screenwriter John August was attached to the project. In 2010, author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith replaced August. In May 2011, filming began in England.
 
According to Warner Bros. Pictures, in the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better.
 
This is not the first time that the franchise has been revisited. In 1991, a short remake aired on NBC with Ben Cross playing Barnabas Collins. It was canceled after one season. Plans for another revival were discussed including a miniseries or feature film to wrap up plotlines with the 1991 cast. In 2004, the WB Network (now the CW Network) ordered a pilot starring Alec Newman as Barnabas Collins. It was not picked up due to creative disagreements. It was also in 2004 that the series ranked #19 and #23 on TV Guide's Top Cult Shows Ever . This was also soon before vampire movie hits "Twilight" and TV series’ "Moonlight" and "Vampire Diaries" hit the air waves.
 
Four members of the original Dark Shadows cast have filmed cameo appearances for Tim Burton's new movie including Jonathan Frid (Barnabas Collins), Lara Parker (Angelique), David Selby (Quentin Collins) and Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans). Frid declined to participate in the 2004 project. 

Which portrayal of Barnabas do you prefer?

Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” scheduled to start shooting in January

Posted on 16 July 2010 by Joey DC

According to Deadline, Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” is scheduled to start shooting in January 2011.

It looks like that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp reunite for the movie adaption of the TV series that  ran on ABC from 1966-71 and “had legions of fans frightened by the moody and atmospheric storyline.

The Tim Burton-directed adaptation of the 60s daytime serial will star Johnny Depp as the vampire Barnabas Collins (the central figure in the groundbreaking supernatural soap). The film is slated to begin production in January at Warner Bros. Depp’s Infinitum Nihil and Graham King’s GK Films are producing.

The movie’s new writer is Seth Grahame-Smith (Author of the bestselling novel, Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) who will be rewriting the John August screenplay.

Tim Burton to take on Addam’s Family

Now this seems like another perfect creative match.  Hollywood Deadline is reporting that Tim Burton will direct a stop motion 3D adaptation of the Addam’s Family.  Universal will distribute the movie through their parent company Illumination Entertainment.  Tim Burton is currently underway on his second stop motion feature Frankenweenie.  The first stop motion film Tim Burton directed was Corpse Bride (he only produced and wrote the story for Nightmare Before Christmas, though it still carries his signature style).  Instead of basing the film off the live action movies and television series in the 60’s, he will be going back to the core source material and illustrations for the Addam’s Family.  Like Coraline, the film will be shot with 3D cameras instead of altering it in post production.  Kevin Miserocchi of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation will executively produce the film.
