Movie News Round-Up

  • Post production on the Dark Shadows movie is now entering its final stages as the May 11 release date draws near. Today, it was reported on Twitter that actress Bella Heathcote (Victoria Winters) visited London's Air Studios to record additional dialogue with dialect coach Kohli Calhoun.
  • Elsewhere, Dark Shadows screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has spoken about the movie in a new interview with Badass Digest. "The tone of the film is operatic," he explains. "Everything is heightened and grand... Johnny [Depp] is just dug in and big." He also confirms the certificate for Dark Shadows: "It's PG-13, so there's not gore... but there's some crazy Barnabas vampire s**t that will surprise people in terms of its ferocity."
  • Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine features artwork of Johnny Depp's Barnabas on the cover of its April edition. The issue will include interviews with original series actresses Alexandra Moltke (Victoria Winters), Kathleen Cody (Hallie Stokes) and Sarah Smyth (Sarah Collins).

Three things I would like to see in this movie (and I hope they thought to include some of them):

1) Have Jonathan Frid play the 200 year old version of Barnabas (that would trip folks out! and just be a 5 min scene)

2) In the end credits, have a film crew guy stumble onto the set, look like a deer caught in headlights, and rush off (hehe, those mistakes used to happen in the series and old fans would appreciate the humor).

3) Have a non-actor true Dark Shadows fan IN THE MOVIE. In such a cult following some fan representation deserves to be shown. Maybe a guy in the tavern swirls around on a bar stool briefly, sloshing beer and revealing a Dark Shadows convention button pinned to his shirt.
