Will Tim Burton's Dark Shadows get a little sexier? Eva Green in talks to join the big screen gothic revival

02.04.2011

Hot off the news that the great Jackie Earle Haley and relative newcomer Bella Heathcoate may be joining Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS, comes word that French beauty and former Bond girl Eva Green (PERFECT SENSE) is in negotiations to take on the lead part of the powerful witch 'Angelique' in the big screen revival of the 60s gothic soap.

According to Deadline, the original series saw Angelique as a powerful witch who was both "tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins." Collins, of course, is being played by Burton perennial Johnny Depp (who funny enough will be enjoying virtually the same dynamic with his PIRATES 4 co-star Penelope Cruz... this lucky f*cking bastard).

Burton is scheduled to begin shooting DARK SHADOWS this April, with a release some time in 2012.
Extra Tidbit: Not that I have anything against her really, but I'm just glad Burton didn't cast his wife Helena Bonham Carter in the role. In fact, the casting developments for DARK SHADOWS have been rather interesting so far...

Burton's last decent movie: Sleepy Hollow (I'm being generous)
Depp's last decent movie as the lead role: Finding Neverland

Maybe I just don't get it. Can someone explain why I should be excited for these guys anymore? I felt like I led all my friends into a dark alley to get robbed when I convinced them all to go see Alice 3D on opening night.

Nice addition,but not for "Angelique" ...a score of other female staple characters Eva would fit the bill for. Charlize either too busy or expensive Tim? Theron, would be a good rival in beauty as homage to the blonde & beautiful Lara Parker, who forever owns this character.BTW,Helena-would be an awesome Dr. Julia Hoffman...if? she's wrote into the story??? that's the looming question-what era? will the story reflect any of the long running series story-lines? perhaps a totally unique

This is starting to look cool

never really a Dark Shadows fan, but this has some serious potential. And I'm cool with Helena Bonham Carter in some role: she's an excellent actress.

Okay, Timmy...

here's the deal, can I call you Timmy? Ahhh of course I can call you Timmy, my brothers name is Timmy. I'd give you a noogie, but I don't wanna mess up your hair. So anyway Timbo I'm a fan, however lately its been increasingly difficult to admit that in public, as you seem to have fallen into some kind of weird, cartoonish, CG filled rut which is just, well its just not you. Go back to your roots on this one Timmer. Shit can the CG cartoons and give us that cold gothic atmosphere with a touch

Go back to your roots on this one Timmer. Shit can the CG cartoons and give us that cold gothic atmosphere with a touch of comedic quirk you do so well. So why don't you draw up some sketches, then put in a call to the make up efx guys, remember them? They miss ya Tim ala bim, as do your fans, you know the ones whom aren't emo teenage girls with Johnny Depp crushes. Although I will admit, that if me and him were trapped on a desert island together, and I'd had a few, you know he is a very pretty fella and all, and one plus one is two, and it takes two baby, it just takes two ;{)

Oh like none of you wouldn't! Don't judge me, I'm no differant than you. Denial isn't just river in Egypt ya know, watch out you don't bump your head on the moon all the way up there on your high horse.
