The Scoop on Dark Shadows From Tim Burton, Helena Bonham-Carter and The Original Cast

Johnny Depp

Tim Burton, the acclaimed director, was one of those eager young fans. And now he's put his own spin on things. His movie version of Dark Shadows opens May 11 with a starry cast headed by Johnny Depp — yet another boyhood buff of the soap — as the reluctant, guilt-ridden and immortally sexy Barnabas.
