Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are coming together once more to work on a new gothic vampire flick, Dark Shadows, which will hit theaters on May 11 2012 .

The movie, which is based off of an ABC soap that aired from 1966 to 1971, is going to be a big bag of paranormal, with the show featuring witches, werewolves, zombies, vampires and a whole bunch of other things that you wouldn’t want as your roommate.

Depp is going to be taking on the role of Barnabas Collins, the one that made the show the cult classic that it is. It is also the character who Johnny Depp has said to have been obsessed with as a child. Creepy.

In contrast to our most beloved vampires at the moment (Yes, I’m talking to you Twi-hards), Depp’s character has dark circles around his eyes, hands with claw-like finger nailsclaws, and overall features that make you compare him to a bat. Looks aside, I’m sure the immortal love child of Burton and Depp will give the Cullens a run for their money.

Along with Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Lee Miller will also be staring in this new gothic vampire flick.

I’m hoping that this movie will try to stick true to vampire classics, but I’m sure that anything these two knock out will be gold. Either that, or it’s just two well known names trying to hop on the vampire craze. Oh well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

What are your thoughts on Johnny as Barnabas Collins? I think he looks pretty sick, and he has the creepiness factor down.
