I’m slowly figuring out that my duties here at FSR are mostly going to include searching for pictures of Johnny Depp. He’s giving Samuel L. a run for his money when it comes to being the busier actor in Hollywood. He’s going to have to strap on his pirate gear again in a little less than a year, and now Tim Burton has chosen to follow up Alice in Wonderland, which stars Depp, with Dark Shadows, which stars Depp.

Or at least he’s attached to it currently.

For those who aren’t fans, “Dark Shadows” was a sort of supernatural television show back in the late 1960s and early 1970s that aired on ABC and featured the vampire Barnabas Collins as well as werewolves, ghosts, zombies, and a ton of other ghouls and monsters.

This is also a bit of dream fulfillment for Depp who has gone on record in the past as being completely obsessed with the character of Barnabas Collins to the point of wanting to be him. Now, it seems, he will get his chance.

Hopefully it won’t come at a time where vampires have completely jumped the fridge. Be on the lookout for the inevitable announcement that Helena Bonham Carter has been cast sometime in the near future.
