New Tim Burton Gothic Vampire Movie 'Dark Shadows' May Feature Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer

It came as little surprise when it was announced that Johnny Depp would star in a Tim Burton-directed adaptation of "Dark Shadows," a gothic vampire soap opera from the 1960s.

If "gothic" is in the log line, Burton is guaranteed to be waiting in the wings, and these days, a Burton film without Johnny Depp is like mashed potatoes without gravy - it starts to sound kind of nice after that's all you've had for ten years.
