    I can kinda see it. But it shows the Hollywood take. Barnabas will be rather attractive, unless they do something to alter his appearance.

    Sleepy Hollow wasn't really meant to be a horror film. Atleast that is my opinion.

    I liked Depp as Ichabod Crane, I think he did that role well. But I don't think he could pull off the character of Barnabas, he's still too young looking. He seems like he would be a better Quentin, but that's just me. And I don't want him to turn Barnabas into something cartoonish like he usually does with his roles.

    This info must not have been accurate.

    Nothing is listed for Johnny working on a Dark Shadows movie, and IMDB has no record of there even being a movie, in pre-production or anything.

    Must have been a rumor.

    Variety.com reported on July 26, 2007 that Warner Bros. was teaming up with Johnny Depp to produce a new feature film based on the show.

    Warner Bros. is teaming with Depp's Infinitum-Nihil and Graham King's GK Films to develop a feature based on the '60s daytime supernatural sudser "Dark Shadows."

    Depp has said in interviews that he has always been obsessed with "Dark Shadows" and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series. The role was originated by Jonathan Frid.
