johnny depp dark shadows First look at Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows'

It’s time once again for Johnny Depp to don white face paint and act all sorts of weird in a Tim Burton movie.

Set pics have emerged from the U.K. shoot of “Dark Shadows” featuring Johnny Depp in character as the vampire Barnabas Collins. “Dark Shadows” is a re-imagining of the 1966 gothic romance that aired on ABC. According to plot summaries, Burton’s version begins in the 18th century when Depp’s Barnabas is turned into a vampire by Eva Green and then buried alive for two hundred years. 

Sounds like it’s right in the Depp/Burton wheelhouse. Though we look forward to the day when Tim Burton finds a use for plain ole Johnny Depp. We’re starting to forget what he looks like when he isn’t a pirate. Or a vampire. Or a monster. Or a demon barber. Or a weirdo. Or a pale faced director. Or a…you get it.
