Aright – I’m usually against remakes and the like, but the idea of Johnny Depp playing Barabas Collins, is just way to freaking cool….
Johnny Depp To Play Barney The Dinosaur!! Err Barnaby Jones!! Err Barnabas Collins?! DARK SHADOWS Movie Coming!!:Merrick here…Warner Bros is allying with Johnny Depp to realize a DARK SHADOWS movie – based on the supernatural soap opera which ran on ABC from 1966-71.Depp, who will produce the project, has repeatedly expressed a desire to play the series’ vampirical lead Barnabas Collins.
Over 1,225 episodes, ‘Dark Shadows’ was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. The show has a continuing rabid fan base that populates Dark Shadows Festival conventions.Â

I’m not a dad, am I allowed to comment? 🙂 This movie sounds like agood one. (I never saw the show.) Can’t wait for it to come out. Next week? The week after? Can’t be this week, with Simpsons and all, but it should only take them a couple of days to shoot, edit and produce, right?
You are more than welcome to post here, at all times.
And you never saw Dark Shadows? The original? Or the Remake on Fox ( I think) in the 90’s?
Vampires crossed with soap operas…
My Mom LOVES that show. She has ’em all on DVD, and I’m almost ashamed to admit that I actually accompanied her to a DS conference in NYC once… I think I was maybe 13. Anyway we saw the original Barnabas dude do a dramatic reading and one of the (now old and decrepit) cast members hit on me while we waited in line for my mom to get an autograph. I didn’t know (and I don’t think she does either) that there was a remake in the ’90s. When I tell her about the movie she’s going to shit a brick.
Yeah, shit a brick. I’m so klassy…
This will be fantastic.
Dark Shadows AND Johnny Depp? It doesn’t get much better than that! DS was a favorite afternoon show in our house; I always wanted to be Lara, the green-eyed witch . . .
