"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.

Awesome! It's gonna be 2005 all over again :D

OT but did Tim Burton ever get approached by Disney to direct the latest POTC? I wonder if when they were looking for someone to replace Gore Verbinski, Johnny brought it up to his bestie lol. It would definitely be weird considering he'd be coming in to an already established series, but I'd love to see Tim do a pirate movie and who better to do it with? Not to mention the sort of mythology it has kind of suits his sensibilities. Anyway...
