Depp tackles vampires
Depp and regular collaborator, director Tim Burton, hope to turn the '60s series - about a man struck down with a vampire curse - into a movie franchise.
The actor says, "I was obsessed with (lead character) Barnabas Collins. I have photographs of me holding Barnabas Collins' posters when I was five or six."
The director reveals, "That's the plan. There was something very weird about (Dark Shadows), it had the weirdest vibe to it. I'm sort of intrigued about that vibe. It's early days on it, but I'm excited about it."
