Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcote will team with Johnny Depp for Dark Shadows.
Haley is in negotiations to play Willie Loomis, while Heathcote “is the choice to play Victoria Winters, the young governess of the Collins estate.” Depp will star as vampire Barnabas Collins.
Dark Shadows is based on the cult series from the 1960’s. In that show, Loomis was a con man that was turned into a vampire lackey by Barnabas.
Tim Burton will direct the Warner Bros. picture, and Seth Grahame-Smith has tackled the screenplay.
