Dark Shadows Update: Tim Burton Confirms “Weird Tone,” Not in 3-D

Posted by Stef in Jun 02,2011 with 1 Comment

Tim Burton fans in Los Angeles can rejoice now that his LACMA exhibit is open. The Wrap took the chance to chat with the director at the exhibition’s opening. Of his Dark Shadows adaptation (currently in production), Burton says, “we’re sort of getting right in there.” He confirms the project has a “weird tone,” and will be somewhat soap-opera-esque (like the 1960s TV show that precedes it), but adds:

“I’m early into it because it’s a funny tone, and that’s part of what the vibe of the show is, and there’s something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, it’s pretty bad. I’m hoping that it will be — it’s early days, let’s put it — I’m very intrigued by the tone. It’s a real ethereal tone we’re trying to go for and I don’t know yet.”

The good news is that Burton won’t be shooting the film in 3-D, or at least he currently has “no plans for that.” Stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote and Chloe Moretz will appear in all their 2-D glory.
