There are few stars as big as Johnny Depp. So anytime he has a movie set to be released it's pretty big news. I am too young to remember the original "Dark Shadows" I had very little interest in the remake back in 1991. I sadly admit you add Johnny Depp and Tim Burton and my interest is peaked.

Johnny Depp will play a vampire named Barnabas Collins.  He was human until a jealous witch cursed him, and buried him alive for 200 years.
