Burton + Depp + Vamps = Love

Vampires. Tim Burton. Johnny Depp. Cult Classics.
Is this love?

Apparently, Burton and Depp are teaming up for the big-screen adaptation of "Dark Shadows," the Gothic soap opera about vampires, ghosts, and monsters that ran on ABC from 1966 to 1971.

Before Lestat, Angel, and Edward Cullen, there was Barnabas Collins, a 175 year old vampire who stalked the town of Collinsport, Maine pining for his lost love.

Originally, the character of Barnabas, played by Shakespearean actor Jonathan Frid, was only intended for a 13-week story arc on "Dark Shadows", but he caused such a sensation with viewers that he became the lead character for the next 4 years.

Depp is said to play Barnabas, a life long dream role for him according to Collider.

Barnabas is the first vampire to stray from the truly evil incarnation that Bram Stoker epitomized with “Dracula.” Depp wants to bring the story of Barnabas to the big screen in a new, sexy, charming aura/style and I'm super excited about this film!
