Fifty percent of what made 'Frost/Nixon' so interesting was the great performance from fantastic Brit character actor Michael Sheen ('Underworld', 'New Moon'). And even though he's been busy recently with the 'Twilight' saga it seems that the actor may join the likes of Johnny Depp, Eva Green and Helena Bonham Carter on board Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' adaption, based on the 1960's sci-fi and horror TV show of the same name. The Playlist have reported that "sources close to the production" are naming Sheen as a potential supporting cast member. However, we must indicate he isn't even in negotiations at this stage so it's mere hearsay. More on this when we get official word. The script has been penned by 'Pride and Predujice And Zombies' scribe Seth Grahame-Smith. Comeback king Jackie Earle Haley ('A Nightmare on Elm Street'), Michelle Pfeiffer and Bella Heathcote will also star.
"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."
