Soap fans waiting on word about the upcoming Dark Shadows revival don't have to wait any longer! While promoting his new film Alice in Wonderland star Johnny Depp had this to say about Dark Shadows:
Tim and I have tossed the idea for Dark Shadows over the years. It was a TV program in the States in the late 60s and early 70s that I remember watching as a kid. I was obsessed with this character, Barnabas Collins, who was a vampire. I came to find out many years later that when he was a kid, Tim ran home like I did to watch that Gothic soap opera. It was a very strange thing back then.We looked at ways to go, story-wise. We've started to come up with something interesting. If all goes well, I will jump into that toward the end of this year."
