"Dark Shadows" Remains in Dark

For several months, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have been attached to a feature-length adaptation of the TV drama series Dark Shadows. But producer Graham King says we may need to wait a little longer. According to CHUD, King said that they're still waiting for a script. King didn't say much else, but it's possible that matters concerning Dark Shadows will become clear once Alice in Wonderland is completed.

This is from the January 23, 2010 official Dark Shadows ShadowGram newsletter:

The "Dark Shadows" feature film finally is heading toward production later this year. It will star longtime DS fan Johnny Depp as "Barnabas."

"Director Tim Burton has completed the extended post-production of his most recent collaboration with Johnny, Disney's live-action/animated movie adaptation of "Alice In Wonderland." Johnny is starting to film "The Tourist" with Angelina Jolie. Variety 11-6: "Depp would play an American tourist drawn into a web of intrigue by a female Interpol agent (Jolie) who is attempting to locate a criminal who was once her lover."

In the meantime, the DS script is being worked on and plans are on target for an expected 2011 release."

So it appears the DS film is back on schedule for filming later this year.
