Eva Green Joins DARK SHADOWS

     February 3, 2011


Eva Green will play the female lead in the Tim Burton-directed adaptation of Dark Shadows.  Per Deadline, the actress is in negotiations to make a turn as Angelique who, in the 60s television series, was a “powerful witch who was alternately tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins.”  Given that the adaptation is being handled by Burton, Johnny Depp will naturally be playing the aforementioned Collins opposite of Green.

In addition to Green and Depp, we reported yesterday that Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcote are also in talks to make turns in Dark Shadows.  Burton will begin shooting the project, first written by John August and most recently updated by Seth Grahme-Smith, this April.
