   At the LA premiere of Public Enemies, Johnny Depp confirmed that he’ll star in an upcoming big screen version of the cult 1960’s show Dark Shadows, directed by Tim Burton. Rumors of the project have circulated ever since Depp, an admitted fan of the gothic soap opera, acquired the rights to the series in 2007.

   Producer Richard D. Zanuck confirmed Depp and Burton’s involvement last December, but this marks the first time that Depp has publicly said that Burton will direct. “Dark Shadows with Tim will also be down the line,” Depp told EW June 23 in LA. “Tim has to finish [Alice in] Wonderland before he can start work on the next film. I love what he did with that. I think people are going to be so excited and satisfied when they see that film. Some of his best work.  And I will be thrilled to work with him again on Dark Shadows. I was a big fan of it when I was a kid and I think it is another of those perfect projects for Tim to reimagine.”
