Dark Shadows (2012)

There have been some other attempts to revive the Mid-Sixties's television series Dark Shadow (1966) but none that have appealed to me as worth checking out as the latest by Tim Burton starring (who else?) Johnny Depp.  Wel, I could tell you who else, and you wouldn't be surprised that Helena Bonham Carter was cast, but how about ChloĆ« Grace Moretz (from Kick-Ass), Eva Green (from STARZ's Camelot), and Michelle Pfeiffer (from Stardust among many other things!).  Although from some of the character descriptions it might appear they are playing toward the comedy, which I think is a mistake, it does otherwise seem to be in the right hands, so we will see.  Check out more at Entertainment Weekly here.
