I was just thinking to myself the other day that I was surprised that no one has remade the Lone Ranger yet. Hopefully they do a better job with it then most recently made remakes.
I was wondering when they would do a remake of the Lone Ranger. I knew it was only a matter of time. However I have a hardtime seeing Johnny Depp as Tonto
Another project Depp is doing is a remake of a old TV show Dark Shadows
Tim Burton has confirmed that his next project will be remaking ABC's vampire soap Dark Shadows, whose rights are rumored to belong to Johnny Depp. This could mean we'll finally see our Johnny Depp vampire dreams come true.
At the Alice In Wonderland press conference, people cornered Burton about his next rumored movie project Dark Shadows, the vampire soap opera that aired on ABC.
When asked if he had plans to pursue the movie adaptation of Dark Shadows and bring the infamous Barnabas Collins back to life his response was:
The rights to the show's rights were optioned by Infinitum-Nihil, which is Johnny Depp's production company. This can only mean one thing: Edward has some gigantic competition. Burton and Depp do everything together lately, there's no reason we shouldn't start assuming the same. Depp as a vampire — is there anything more ridiculous and wonderful at the same time?
Possibly. Another Tim Burton project... Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
I think Depp would be as good as any choice for Barnabas Collins...
I used to love that show as a kid...
This would be an awesome role for him, so I hope they can make it happen.
Same here. I have seen an article with Johnny Depp saying he was a big fan of the show and would love to play the part of Barnabas Collins.
I wished Jerry Bruckheimer would get National Treasure 3 going. I loved the first two even though they were implausible and panned by critics. Which means they were a success at the Box Office and also on DVD release.
