Eva Green for "Dark Shadows"

Eva Green

Casting is underway for Burton's forthcoming Dark Shadows adaptation. Deadline reveals that Eva Green, well-known for her role as the "Bond girl" Vesper Lynd in 2006's Casino Royale, is negotiating to play the role of Angelique, the female lead. Angelique is the love interest of Barnabas Collins, the vampire who will be played by Johnny Depp.

In related news, Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcoate are also in talks to play prominent roles in the fantasy drama. Haley will likely play Willie Loomis, and Heathcoate will likely be Victoria Winters, the young governess of the Collins estate.

Dark Shadows is intended to finally begin production this Spring.

wow! I always love Johnny Depp in Burton movies, naturally. I really like Eva Green since I saw her in "The Dreamers"! That is great news to read that those two might end up in a movie together! :)

Johnny Depp and Eva Green will make one HOT couple. I will see it if it has them in it. She is my girl crush and he has been in a dream or two.
