    Has anyone read the GW article "Wraith Be Dead?"?? Dark Shadows was mentioned!!

    Was it geeky of me to squeee at the mention of one of my fav shows on GW??

    Yup! I was squeeing about that on Live Journal the other day. Variety reported on it. ShadowGram says they'll just be starting on a script now, so it'll probably be a few years before we actually get the movie... but YAYS! *cough* In the mean time I have Zachary Quinto as Spock to squee about. *cough*

    I hope they don't do the whole resurrection of Barnabas again... they've done that at least 4 times now. I wonder if we'll get any original actor cameos? I'm pretty sure John Karlen had a cameo in the 2004 WB pilot. I could see David Selby, Lara Parker, Kathryn Leigh Scott and John Karlen willing to do a cameo...

    Default Johnny Depp and Tim Burton team up for Dark Shadows

    According to Hollywood mogul Richard D. Zanuck, Johnny Depp is going to play Barnabas Collins in a new version of the cult horror soap opera Dark Shadows.

    Speaking to Collider.com, Zanuck confirmed that Tim Burton would be directing the film, stating firmly, "That's his next project." Zanuck noted that Depp owned the rights to the series, adding, "He used to sneak out of school to get home to turn on the television" to watch the show.

    The new version has been written by John August based on the original stories by Dan Curtis. Dark Shadows ran for 1225 episodes from 1966-1971, with a remake in 1991, starring Star Trek's Ben Cross, lasting for 13 weeks.

    A pilot was shot in 2004 but not picked up, while Big Finish Productions has recently been releasing original audio stories featuring some of the original cast.

    That sounds awesome! I love Tim Burton and Johnny Depp to bits, I can't wait for Alice in Wonderland! Will probably be a while before we see the movie... Will it be called Dark Shadows, too?

    It does, doesn't it? I haven't seen on film I didn't like! And if they add Helena Bonham Carter to it, it's even better

    SDCC: Tim Burton still plans on Dark Shadows movie

    Tim Burton will be working on Alice in Wonderland through 2010, but he still has his sights on a remake of Dark Shadows. Vampire television serials may be de rigueur these days, but Dark Shadows has True Blood and Vampire Diaries beat by decades.

    "That's the plan," Burton said at a press conference at Comic-Con in San Diego Thursday, where he was promoting Alice in Wonderland. "If I'd ever finish this one, yeah."

    For anyone waiting for the 2012 "Dark Shadows" movie, it's now in the theaters (started May 11, 2012), starring Johnny Depp as a *vampy* Barnabas Collins.

    Also in the news -- while reading one of the behind-the-scenes articles, Jonathan Frid, who portrayed the original Barnabas Collins character, sadly passed away last month (April 13 or 14-? 2012, depending on the "source"). Many of the obit articles said he passed away peacefully from natural causes, but another article said he had suffered from a fall and died soon after. Regardless of how he left us (in this life and world) with his acting legacy, he will be missed. Not sure of any other details as to what happened. He did seem a bit disoriented while spending time working on his cameo for the 2012 DS movie. I just can't picture him as a cranky old man -- while on the set and between acting takes, tho, complaining about not needing to sit down (from age related entropy). And he did look much better over these many recent years (in his human 80's) than the 200 year old-aged person his make-up artist did back in the 1960's, when Barnabas "aged" due to Dr. Julia Hoffman's botched serum mixture to cure him..

    edit--cause of death..?

    Just spent a bunch of hours looking at old DS info and watching a few video clips from the original DS series.
    But I have to say----

    Angelique... --if you're still reading any of these postings-- you nailed it! David Selby, Lara Parker, and Kathryn Leigh Scott were 3 of the 4 original DS cameos on Johnny Depp's Dark Shadows movie. Jonathan Frid was the 4th cameo guest. I was delighted to hear all of these wonderful actors/actresses got invited to show up in this 2012 DS movie. It sounded like they all had a great time on the 2012 movie, even tho it wasn't "their Dark Shadows" version. It seemed to be an honor that TPTB would offer these top 4 DS alumni a visiting spot in the movie. Lara Parker's interview about it made me think she really enjoyed being there.

    Sadly tho, Jonathan Frid was really sliding downhill health-wise at that time, age wise. If I understood the interviews correctly, all of the rumors about him causing an anxiety scene(s) with the his other DS cast members, was true. He wanted to go home, and the 4-some almost didn't make it to the studio the day of the actual filming, because of this. Fortunately, he (and his leading ladies, Lara Parker and Kathryn Leigh Scott who helped him walk) made it into the doors at the new vampy Barnabas' lavish party. So very happy they were all able to get there, and happier too, that Kathryn Leigh Scott was able to include some memories from the 2012 DS movie into her 50th(?) anniversary book, "Dark Shadows: Return to Collinwood"... Foreword summary was written by Jonathan Frid.

    Apparently CW is doing a revival/continuation that's to be called Dark Shadows: Reincarnation

    https://www.thewrap.com/dark-shadows...ent-at-the-cw/


    I'm very skittish about this. One, because it's the CW. Two, because for years now Big Finish has been doing brilliant audio drama continuations and I'd pick their work over untested new TV any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
