Johnny Depp is bidding to take his favourite childhood TV show, vampire thriller DARK SHADOWS, to the big screen.
Depp and regular collaborator, director Tim Burton, hope to turn the '60s series - about a man struck down with a vampire curse - into a movie franchise.
The actor says, "I was obsessed with (lead character) Barnabas Collins. I have photographs of me holding Barnabas Collins' posters when I was five or six."
And Burton - who worked with Depp on movies Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - admits work is already under way.
The director reveals, "That's the plan. There was something very weird about (Dark Shadows), it had the weirdest vibe to it. I'm sort of intrigued about that vibe. It's early days on it, but I'm excited about it."
