I'm looking forward to watch this movie. Another Tim Burton & Johnny Depp movie. I love their tandem. Very Gothic. 

Dark Shadows is a personal favourite of depp’s and he convinced his number one director, Tim Burton, to make it with him. It’s an update of a TV show from the 1960s involving vampires, werewolves and all sorts of mythical creatures of the night.

Johnny Depp will be portraying as a vampire in an upcoming Tim Burton movie, "Dark Shadows."

In the movie, the versatile 48-year-old actor will be Barnabas Collins, an 18th century vampire who awakens to the 20th century where he encounters monsters, witches, werewolves and other fictional creatures.

The supernatural drama is based on a 1966-1971 gothic soap opera of the same name.

The film has an all star cast (Well it is a Burton / Depp film after all): Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins; Chloë Grace Moretz as Carolyn Stoddard; Helena Bonham Carter as Dr. Julia Hoffman; Eva Green as Angelique Bouchard; Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard;  Jackie Earle Haley as Willie Loomis; Jonny Lee Miller as Roger Collins and Christopher Lee.

The film is set to be released on May 11 in the United States.So, maybe, it will be released here in Manila around June or July.
