Photos of Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows – Is Tim Burton Ruining This?

Photos of Johnny Depp on the set of Dark Shadows have emerged online. Judging from how white Depp is, Burton may have mistaken this vampire flick for a zombie one. I’m holding out hope this make-up is for a certain scene, or to combat some strange lighting. Tim Burton has a way of going too far and needs to be reigned in at times. If this is representative of how the rest of the film looks we might be in for another Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (just so everyone’s clear – that’s a bad thing). Depp plays the lead character Barnabas Collins with Tim Burton directing. The character Barnabas Collins appeared a year into the run of the soap opera and made the show wildly popular. He even got under Depp’s skin, who pushed for this project from the get-go. There’s a lot of possibilities with this movie, as the show featured werewolves, zombies, man-made monsters, witches, warlocks, time travel, and a parallel universe. Burton and Depp seem to be fairly unstoppable at the box office lately. Take a look at the photos below and let us know what you think.

  1. I totally agree Mike. The shots of Johnny Depp in costume do not inspire confidence… Don’t get me wrong, I occasionally like Tim Burton’s quirky style but for me this just seems like the same old same old. After all the vampire related content that’s been pushed down our throats recently its tough to get behind this project.

  2. I was not aware that Burton was directing Dark Shadows. My hopes for this resurrection of a great classic has just hit bottom. I have seldom been impressed by Tim Burton. I suppose he has a style that some people like, however, I am not one of them. The pictures presented on this site do not inspire enthusiasm.
