"This is a thing he raced home to see when he was about age 10, so it's returning to his childhood roots of what he loved watching," Bonham Carter said of the original "Dark Shadows." "It's actually a really bad, hilariously bad soap opera, and because it's so bad, he felt he had to make a hugely expensive movie."
Bonham Carter continues, "It's going to be unlike [anything], I think. It's dangerous to say that. But it's very original and it's kind of uncategorizable. It's going to be impossible to sell, frankly, because it's just so ... it's a soap opera, but it's very, very subtle. I don't know. We'll see. It's a ghost story, but then it's an unhappy vampire story, »

 Reports of the death of creativity in Hollywood are probably somewhat exaggerated, but it can't be denied that there are a lot of reboots, remakes, adaptations, sequels, prequels, etc. in the pipeline. After the jump, updates on three we've got our eye on: Jose Padilha describes his Robocop as being about "a man being turned into a product by a corporation" Tomb Raider producer Graham King confirms that he has a completed script, and explains how he took inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes Dark Shadows star Helena Bonham Carter discusses what makes Tim Burton's Dark Shadows such a tough sell Earlier this fall , Robocop helmer Jose Padilha said that while he wasn't interested in copying Paul Verhoeven's original too closely, he did admire "the sharpness and political tone" of the 1987 sci-fi film, and that he wanted to "address topics that Verhoeven [left] untreated." Such as: »

Back in June we told you that legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper may indeed be appearing in Tim Burton's big screen adaptation of the TV vampire soap Dark Shadows, and today the official word has come.
According to The Los Angeles Times, "Cooper was equally impressed walking through the huge, elaborate sets of Dark Shadows, the Warner Bros. film that stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green and Helena Bonham Carter and reaches theaters in May 2012. 'They should take that set and make it a haunted house next year,' Cooper said of the Pinewood Studios constructs that include a sprawling Gothic mansion and a harbor city complete with pier and boats floating in an artificial ocean. Cooper plays himself in the film, which is set in 1972 – Depp’s character, the recently revived vampire Barnabas Collins, hires the rock star to play a private ball at his seaside home in Maine. »

Back in September, we brought you an interview with Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Hick) who is portraying Carolyn Stoddard in director Tim Burton‘s forthcoming big-screen adaptation of the cult classic television series, Dark Shadows. In the interview, the actress described her character as “a really fun character. She is crazy. She is this teenager, like 15-year-old hippie who is into The Carpenters and Alice Cooper. She’s super music-y and raw, like free love, you know. She’s fun”.
Now, the LATimes reports that Detroit’s own shock rocker will be bringing his nightmare to the big-screen alongside the ensemble cast. Alice Cooper will be playing himself in the film, and will be performing his early 70s hit song, “No More Mr. Nice Guy”.
Cooper was impressed with the sets for the film at Pinewood Studios and said,

Last week, we brought you the first official image that Warner Bros. Pictures released of the entire cast of director Tim Burton‘s forthcoming big-screen adaptation of the cult classic television series, Dark Shadows.
Now, thanks to the folks over at Empire, we get our first ‘official’ look behind the scenes of the long awaited film. The first image features Burton talking with Michelle Pfeiffer, who is portraying Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, and Jonny Lee Miller, who is portraying her Brother, Roger Collins. The second image shows Burton directing a very bloodied Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins.

You just can’t keep a good vampire down, which seems to be the case with Barnabas Collins. Since he was introduced to American audiences in the second season of campy/gothic 60s soap opera Dark Shadows, Barnabas has remained the most popular and best-remembered part of the series. From the series spawned a comic book series, two feature films, several novels, a revival series in the 90s starring Ben Cross in the titular role, and a failed pilot filmed for The CW. And now, the often-rumored film adaptation from the collaboration team of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp is finally in production. And we have the new pictures from the set.
A few weeks ago, fans were aghast when set pictures were leaked featuring Depp in ghostly-white make-up dressed like Michael Jackson (which should cause sheer terror in anybody). But the new pictures look closer to what we should »
So, yeah he once again looks a little too emo given his goth gone wild make-up but at least we know Johnny Depp is involved in some nefarious goings on in Tim Burton's big screen adaptation of Dark Shadows.
Check out the new images below courtesy of Empire Online.
The ensemble cast includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz, Thomas McDonell, and newcomer Gulliver McGrath. Look for it in theatres in glorious 2D on May 11, 2012.

The first images  we saw from Tim Burton's Dark Shadows were cause for concern: paparazzi photos of Johnny Depp in extreme whiteface and a more than slightly Michael Jackson-inspired getup. Warner Bros. countered with an official still  showing the entire cast, and that mollified fans (somewhat) who had become concerned about the film's direction. Now there are two new snaps, and one features Depp in pretty full vampiric effect, with blood all over his clawed hand. He's even channeling an old-school Nosferatu sort of vibe, which might help convince rubberneckers that this is a movie, not a trainwreck. Empire  debuted the pics; along with one of bloody Barnabas we get a shot of Tim Burton directing Jonny Lee Miller as Roger Collins and Michelle Pfeiffer as Elizabeth Collins Stoddard.

Warner Bros. and Tim Burton must have gotten tired of the leaked set photos, because they have released official set photos featuring Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer. Directed by Tim Burton, Dark Shadows will be released on May 11th, 2012 and stars Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Gulliver McGrath, and Bella Heathcote.

Warner Bros. has released two official set photos from Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. The film is based off the cult TV series of the same name which ran from 1969 – 1973 and centered on vampire Barnabas Collins (played by Johnny Depp) and his attempt to reintegrate with his descendants after being buried 200 years ago. Burton and Depp decided 1972 was the right time to set the movie. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith explains to Empire, "1972 is right at the time when the hippie movement and all its peace and love is dying out and being replaced by this me-me-me generation in the '70s who are all about showing their wealth and having everything." Is the film going to act like the hippie movement dying out was a bad thing? Who likes hippies? Hit the jump to check out the set photos as well as the College Humor video that immediately sprung to mind when I saw the photos. »

Empire magazine over here in the UK have debuted a couple of new images from the now-shooting set of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows. These new pics show Burton, along with cast members Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jonny Lee Miller.

Recent "spy" photos from the set of the upcoming adaptation of Dark Shadows offered the first look at Johnny Depp as the 200-year-old vampire Barnabas Collins, and from the looks of it, Depp was wearing so much clownish goth make-up that it put his Mad Hatter role from Alice in Wonderland to shame.
Luckily, director Tim Burton has delivered a first look photo of the cast, where Depp, and the rest of the cast, look more like they just stepped out of the ABC gothic soap opera on which the movie is based. "I remember seeing a group photograph of the cast of the original series," Burton told EW. "For me it captured the weird Dark Shadows vibe in a single image. I had a brief window of opportunity to have our cast present at the same time, the day before principle photography began. We decided to stage a similar picture instead of rehearsing, »

Entertainment Weekly has the first official image from Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, featuring the entire cast of recognizable faces (albeit stoic or smug here). Until now, much of the talk has been about how we are getting yet another collaboration between the inseparable duo of Burton and Johnny Depp (their 8th), and a ghastly snapshot of the latter in full make-up on set looking like a vampiric Michael Jackson (image below, via Celebuzz).
But EW’s portrait should, hopefully, shift the conversation to what a stellar cast Burton has assembled to adapt the ’60s supernatural soap opera into another of his gothic stories.
Depp stands creepily in the center as Barnabas Collins, a 175-year-old vampire freed from his tomb to return to Collinwood Manor two centuries later. A blonde Eva Green lurks in the background as Barnabas’ witchy betrayer, Angelique Brouchard. Burton’s fantastic domestic partner, Helena Bonham Carter, »

Last week, we brought you some behind-the-scenes pictures from the set of director Tim Burton‘s forthcoming adaptation of Dark Shadows. The pictures showed a very odd looking Johnny Depp, caked with makeup for his portrayal of Barnabas Collins in the film. The pictures made some people wonder just what Burton was going for.
Now, you don’t have to wonder (or worry). Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first official image of the entire cast of Dark Shadows, which you can check out below, along with the official synopsis for Burton’s film.

In a clever move to contain the PR damage made last week by long-range paparazzi shots of Johnny Depp in very strange looking white makeup, Warners has released the first official photo from their upcoming film adaptation of classic gothic soap opera "Dark Shadows" via EW.
The photo shows that Depp's Barnabas Collins look actually borrows heavily from original star Jonathan Frid's. In fact the photo is Burton's recreation of a group photograph of the cast of the original series and was taken on the day before principle photography began at one of the only times the cast was all present at the same time.
