...the gothic vampire tale "Dark Shadows" for Warner Bros. and his favorite director, Tim Burton. Ending speculations, Depp finally decided to make this his next movie, thus joining the vampire revolution.
We've been reporting about this film since 2008, and I'm finally glad it's seeing the light of day. (Check out our original story on "Dark Shadows" by clicking here)
"Dark Shadows" was a gothic soap opera from the 60s about the Collins family and their friends, and all the strange occurrences that happen to them involving vampires, witches, werewolves, and such. Sort of like "Twilight" but original
Warner Brothers has set April for production start date. Depp will play Barnabas Collins, a vampire in search of his long lost love. Seth Grahame-Smith rewrote the script by John August.

Meanwhile, here's more "Sucker Punch" info from Yahoo:
Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. A young girl's dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls--the outspoken Rocket, the street-smart Blondie, the fiercely loyal Amber and the reluctant Sweet Pea - to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue, Madam Gorski and the High Roller. Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal.

I sat down with director Danny Boyle and actor James Franco for an interview for their new film “127 Hours.” Franco gave one of the best performances of the year playing Aron Ralston, the real-life canyoneer who resorted to cutting off his right arm after being trapped under a boulder near Moab, Utah for 5 days.
Franco has always been a great interviewee (I enjoyed talking to him for “Milk”) and Boyle, one of the best directors of his generation, is insightful. We talked about:
• The challenges for Boyle in going from the populated city of Mumbai for “Slumdog Millionaire” to the claustrophobic canyon for “127 Hours.”
• What did he see in Franco that made him the best Ralston?
• How did Franco prepare for the role both physically and mentally?
“127 Hours” opens Friday, Nov. 5th, make sure to watch this fantastic film!
