I remember that whenever I've published something on Tim Burton in the past a lot of you mentioned in your comments that you would like him to just quit all his plans and finally start working on his version of "Dark Shadows". Well good news for you: according to "Deadline NY", Tim Burton has hired Seth Grahame Smith to write the script so that they might start shooting the film in January 2011. If you remember, Seth Grahame Smith is the author of the bestselling novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" which will be adapted into a film by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, and now he will work with Burton again on "Dark Shadows" with a new and unique approach to the material. "Dark Shadows" was cult supernatural TV show from the 60's full of vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies as the main characters. In Tim Burton's adaptation, Johnny Depp is supposed to play the vampire patriarch Barnabas Collins.
