Mash-up author Seth Grahame-Smith has just signed on to one of the most exciting paranormal movie projects in Hollywood, the big screen adaptation of the television show Dark Shadows.
Dark Shadows was originally a daytime drama that ran on ABC during the late 60s. But while there have been many soap operas over the years, this was the first with a supernatural focus. Dark Shadows spawned a legacy of fans hungry for vampire heroes. And as many people noted about the mass popularity of the Twilight saga, Dark Shadows did it first.
The film adaptation has been in the works for several years, but recently got an update when movie juggernauts Tim Burton and Johnny Depp became attached to the project. Burton and Depp have worked together in such films as Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, Edward Scissorhands and the 2005 re-make of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. So fans can expect the big screen version of Dark Shadows to share a similar the tone as some of the artists’ other collaborations.
