"Dark Shadows" Release Date Announced

Screen Rant announces that Warner Bros. intends to release Dark Shadows into theaters on May 11th, 2012.

Dark Shadows will be released just a few months before the feature-length, stop-motion version of Frankenweenie arrives in cinemas on October 5th, 2012.

This will not be the first time two Tim Burton-directed features (one live-action, the other stop-motion) are released in theaters in one year. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride, both from Warner Bros., came out in July and September of 2005, respectively.

No Sheen, Yes Elfman

A couple of updates on two forthcoming Tim Burton movies:

Michael Sheen has stated that he will actually not be in Dark Shadows. "I'm not in Dark Shadows," said Sheen. "I get to watch it," he says, "which is wonderful." Sheen was in talks for a smaller role in the film, but nothing was confirmed.

In other news, Danny Elfman will officially be the composer of the upcoming adaptation of Frankenweenie, Film Music Reporter writes.
