Some forty odd years ago a soap opera began its run, which would eventually take it to 1245 episodes by the time it went off the air in 1971. But this was no garden variety soap opera. This was “Dark Shadows”.

According to trade magazine Variety, via Filmstalker, Johnny Depp’s production company Infinitum-Nihil, GK Films, and Warner Bros. have signed a deal with the estate of the late Dan Curtis, and secured the rights to develop a feature film based on the show. Depp and Graham King will produce with David Kennedy, who ran Dan Curtis Prods. until Curtis’ death. There’s no word on who would direct, and indeed no word on whether Mr Depp would take on the signature role of Barnabas Collins himself. But it would seem the obvious choice, especially considering his personal attachment to the character:

Depp has said in interviews that he has always been obsessed with “Dark Shadows” and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series.

    I loved that show and Depp doing the part of Barnasbas Collins would be just the greatest remake of all times. He can give Barnasbas the darkness he deserves. Gives me chills just thinking about.

    OMG, Dark Shadows was the show I could not miss. I think that Johnny would be great as Barnibus Collins. I am excited and will be keeping a watch out for this. Johnny is awsome in whatever he does. I am a great fan. He is a wonderful person.

    I absolutely love vampire movies and books, have read all of Anne Rice and others. I really hope that Johnny Depp takes the lead part in Dark Shadows because he is a wonderful actor and would bring to the part that dark, sexy, mysteriousness that is essential for a vampire to have. These days we like our vampires gothic and very sexy and he has that definitely, lets hope he does the movie and takes the lead role.
