There seems to be a lot of people who are not happy about Burton and Depps` latest collaboration in Dark Shadows. For those of you who don`t know, Dark Shadows is Burtons` re-creation of a popular TV series of the same name from the 60s. A `gothic soap`
I`ve never been much for soaps but this one does capture my attention however, it seems most people are not so happy. Trying to dig up some information I have read multiple comments on several sites ranging from mild annoyance to outrage over this latest work in progress.
The problem seems not to be the work itself but rather Burtons` choice to cast Depp as Barnabas Collins. Many seem to think Depp will be unable to portray this classic character properly. I`ve seen many comments about how Depp looks nothing like the original and several more stating he simply can`t act in general.
There are also several comments attacking Burton alone. Many fans of the original series fear he will `ruin` the image of the old TV series. One thing to keep in mind, this is a RE-CREATION. Yes, some things, as in all remakes will be different.
I personally, am a fan of both Depp and Burton not to mention I have a love for anything gothic so I will await May of this year eagerly.
