We reported a few weeks ago that Dark Shadows has started production, with Johnny Depp starring as vampire Barnabas Collins. Director Tim Burton recently spoke about his soap opera adaptation and confirmed that the project will not be in 3D. Here's what he had to say below.

"I have no plans for that. I loved doing Alice in Wonderland in 3D. Frankenweenie, gonna do that in 3D. There's people like, 'Everything's gonna be in 3D,' or 'I hate 3D!' I think people should have a choice. I don't think it should be forced on anybody. At the same time, it's great, some of it. It's like 'Yes or no!? 3D! Yes or no?!' It's like, well, you know, come on, whatever, some yes, some no.


He also talked about the tone of the story, and if it will have the same kind of vibe as the Dark Shadows soap opera, which originally aired in 1966.

"It's been hard to kind of come here because I'm just starting, and it's a weird tone and it's a lot of actors and, you know, we're not starting with the simple stuff; we're sort of getting right in there. You like to kind of sneak up on it a little bit, but this one we just kind of slammed right into it. I'm early into it because it's a funny tone, and that's part of what the vibe of the show is, and there's something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, it's pretty bad. I'm hoping that it will be -- it's early days, let's put it -- I'm very intrigued by the tone. It's a real ethereal tone we're trying to go for and I don't know yet."

    I was excited when I heard about this adaptation a few years back. I just hope the audience isn't "vamped" out by the time it hits theaters.

    Good on the 3D!! I would settle for it in black and white though. That true feel of the original show.
