Chloe Moretz is in negotiations to play Michelle Pfeiffer's daughter in forthcoming Tim Burton movie 'Dark Shadows'.
The 'Kick-Ass' actress - who recently completed filming on Martin Scorsese's forthcoming project 'Hugo Cabret' - will play Carolyn in the Tim Burton-directed movie based on the 60s TV soap.
Tim's long-term partner Helena Bonham Carter is also involved in the project as Dr. Julia Hoffman, a woman who helps Barnabas - who is searching for a lost love - secure his thirst for blood.
Speaking about the movie recently, Johnny confessed it will be "in keeping" with the original TV series.
He said: "I'm very excited to film it. You know, it's something that Tim and I have talked about for a number of years because we were both fans. As kids, you know, you run home at 3 o'clock in the afternoon to go watch this gothic soap opera on television with vampires and everything.
"So our version, I guess, there's something that's very interesting coming from the screenplay and from the talks that Tim and I have had which is it retains that sort of bizarre distance that everyone has with one another in terms of the characters.
"Maybe Barnabus, in this version, is maybe a little bit more, maybe waxes a little more poetic now and again, you know? But it's definitely in keeping with the original series."
