Johnny Depp and Tim Burton will team up for the eighth time on Dark Shadows, a film adaptation of the gothic television serial from the '60s. Production will begin in April. The duo is coming off the huge success of Alice in Wonderland, which raked in more than $1 billion worldwide.
Depp is at the height of his drawing power right now, and he's got a couple high-profile projects slated for release in the coming months. The Tourist will hit theaters on December, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens on May 20.
BoxOffice.com is currently predicting a $34 million debut for The Tourist.
