Thanks to George for the link. 🙂

Recently some of the stars of Tim Burton’s next feature, a film version of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, have been out and about talking about the director’s take on the show. MTV caught up with Helena Bonham Carter who revealed her reluctance and excitement about playing Dr. Julia Hoffman, the “alcoholic psychiatrist.” While promoting Rango, Johnny Depp, who’s set to lead as the vampire Barnabus Collins, told Collider, “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.”

Well, another member from the cast had a bit of a different take on the film’s connection to the source material. While promoting her upcoming film Cracks, Eva Green, who’s onboard to play the witch Angelique, explained that the film is so different, referring back to the show wouldn’t help her develop her character. Instead, she’s going for a cross between Bette Davis and Janis Joplin. Check it out for yourself in the clip below.

    …after I saw the various events regarding Cracks introduction in US, I am thinking that Cracks is the kind of film that the American market prefers not so much for tickets, but for awards. I cross fingers 🙂

    Eva always chooses roles stronger. And this is what differentiates Eva of others, and so I was not scared when Eva earn at least a Golden Globe for those roles.
