Dark Shadows redux redux redux

Link gakked from ivan23. Apparently we may yet see Barnabas Collins played by Johnny Depp in a feature.

A bit surprised that anyone is interested in the property after last year's attempt at another series revival (with Alec Newman, which I would actually quite like to have seen) failed to get a pickup.

If nothing else, I would trust Depp to take the job seriously. Which is more than I can say for Ben Cross.

I was just thinking that same thing. Yes, about your entire post. Trillness strikes again!

Also, I need a Collinwood icon.

I think I may need to put the Valerie-from-D2K icon you made me back into rotation -- it was handy to have as a sort of generic-vampire-topic one!

I let my extra icons lapse because, seriously, if I feel constrained with FORTY-SIX, there's something wrong. But sometimes I do...

I need to overhaul my icons so badly. I ended up with lots of SGA ones, obviously, but I still have a number of Jossverse icons, and generic ones, and...

Yeah. I feel constrained with my hundred and some icons. It's kind of sad.

I was excited to read about it too. Though I actualy loved the 90's series. That was actually my first exposure to Dark Shadows.

Oh, I adore the series overall. Cross' performance, not so much.

I have the first set of DVDs from the 1960's series and it is so much fun to watch. I'd love to see a movie version of the first Barnabas story arc- although it won't be the same without the amazingly tasteful giant sixties hair and the oh so sexy sacklike sixties dresses.

I'd love to see a movie version of the first Barnabas story arc-

*nods* One that isn't House of Dark Shadows. Which is equal parts quite clever condensing and cracktastic bizarritude. (And which was the closest thing to the old series available for rental at the just-off-campus video store at the time of the NBC revival.)

At this point all bets are off as to whether it will be really really cool or completely blow. But it can't help but be interesting regardless.

LOL I'd caught that on G4's coverage of the San Diego Comic Con [what little I saw of it] and remembered to tell Mom about it, as, of course she is a big 'Dark Shadows' fan, and is actually fond of Johnny Depp as well.

Mom's comment, at first, was "who would he play, he really can't do Barnabas", and then it went from there until she'd reached the realization that she was thinking of Johnny as too *young* to play Barnabas, because of how long ago the character was on the air. Then, she made the comment that she has to remind herself that Johnny is at least *close* to the same age that Jonathan Frid was when *he* played Barnabas when the show originally aired. So she felt better about it after that. *G*
