Earlier this month we saw the gorgeous French actress Eva Green sign up to Tim Burton's new TV-to-feature project 'Dark Shadows'. Burton's new adaption of the long forgotten 60's sci-fi/horror TV series of the same name is set to star Green alongside Burton regular Johnny Depp and he's been talking to MTV all about the project. Depp will be playing the role of vampire Barnabas Collins, played by actor Jonathan Frid. Jackie Earle Haley ('A Nightmare on Elm Street', 'Watchmen') and Bella Heathcote also star. Depp recently finished shooting on pirate follow-up 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' - check out what he had to say in the interview below.

"For me, even the conversations Iíve had with Tim, what Jonathan Frid did with that character and that classic look he created, I find it very difficult to stray very far from that," Depp tells the network. "I think itís going to be somewhere in that arena, with maybe just a couple of different touches here and there. Thereís something about this vampire coming back after 200 years into this modern world, with a touch of the poetic, with maybe a tendency to maybe wax a little poetic now and again. I have a good feeling about it. But Jonathan Fridís Barnabas was so special."

The original series of 'Dark Shadows', created by Dan Curtis, spawned over 1225 episodes over the years and was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.
