Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Author to Pen Dark Shadows
Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES and ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, has been hired to adapt Warner Bros. feature version of the supernatural soap DARK SHADOWS, reports VARIETY.
The project will reunite director Tim Burton with star Johnny Depp, who will produce with Graham King's GK Films, Richard Zanuck, Christi Dembrowski and David Kennedy.
Grahame-Smith is already working with Burton on the adaptation of his LINCOLN novel.
Depp, a huge fan of the series, obtained the rights from producer/director Dan Curtis' estate. The show followed vampire Barnabas Collins, the character Depp would play, and aired on ABC for five years beginning in 1966.
