"I'm doing next summer with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp Dark Shadows, which is an old 70s soap opera (that aired) here in the United States," Contactmusic quoted Zanuck as telling Collider.com.
And starring in the film will be a dream come true for Depp who was obsessed with the spooky programme as a child. "(Depp) was obsessed, as a young person (with Dark Shadows). He used to sneak out of school to get home to turn on the television set. It was a very popular show for about four or five seasons," Zanuck added.
