Depp, Burton reunite on ‘Dark Shadows’

Warner Bros. to distribute project long in the works

Warner Bros. has slotted its long-simmering “Dark Shadows” project for a spring production start with Johnny Depp starring.

Depp has been attached to star and produce with Graham King’s GK Films and Depp’s Infinitum Nihil for the past three years with Tim Burton expected to direct. Richard Zanuck, Christi Dembrowski and David Kennedy are also producers.

Seth Grahame-Smith penned the script.

Kennedy brought the project to Depp from the estate of Dan Curtis, the producer-director who created the vampire soap opera that aired weekdays on ABC from 1966 to 1971 with 1,225 episodes.

Studio hasn’t set a release date for the bigscreen project.
