The former Bond Girl – who plays a witch in Tim Burton’s vampire movie Dark Shadows – stayed with the gothic theme at the LA premiere, with pasty white make-up, black eyes and a long, figure-hugging Tom Ford gown.

Earlier old pals Johnny and Tim joked about a high-voltage sex scene between actor’s blood-sucking oddball and Eva’s spellbinding witch.

Tim said: “We’ve seen enough phony sex scenes that we thought we should make it real for a change.

“It’s expensive sex with a lot of trashing of rooms … It’s fun though.”

Johnny added: “You read it on the page, and it reads a certain way, and you see Eva Green, who is one of the most stunning and brilliant women on the planet, and then suddenly, you’re being strapped together by wires and you know, straps and things like that and then hurled across the room and then bashed into a wall.

“Basically, it was a lot of fun.”

300 star Rodrigo Santoro has clarified details about Battle of Artemisia, the much-anticipated follow-up to the original Spartan vs. Persian battle movie 300, which shot actor Gerard Butler to fame in 2006.

Rodrigo, who will be once more playing the role of Persian King Xerxes, confirmed that the movie is due to be shot this summer, and depict ancient historical events that took place alongside the storyline of its predecessor.

The actor told Collider: “I think they’re calling it a spin-off because it’s not exactly a prequel, it’s not a sequel. It takes place in the same time, you start a little earlier but then you see that it’s like a different point of view, a different camera, a different angle.

“While that battle was happening, the one that you saw in 300, there was another battle happening next to it and you will have a chance to see all of that happening and how they interact. I don’t want to ruin it.”

Rodrigo went on to reveal that this film will focus much more on his character’s childhood and how he became the Persian King: “I think they will try to do a little backstory on Xerxes and they will explain how he became ‘the God King’, which I’m excited about.”

He added: “I don’t know what it’s going to be. I’ve never played a character twice. It’s interesting. I think the challenging thing for me now will be to try to bring something new for the fans, for the audience and for myself just to make it interesting to play it again.”

The film is to be directed by Noam Murro, and it has already been revealed that Casino Royale actress Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton will be starring alongside Rodrigo in the Frank Miller graphic novel adaptation.

LOS ANGELES – “I think Johnny Depp is extremely sexy, especially with his long fingers (which) can do many things,” said Eva Green – eyes afire with mirth and naughtiness – about her “Dark Shadows” co-star in a recent interview.

Goaded to elaborate on “many things,” the actress purred, and said in French-accented English said: “Sshhh … I won’t tell you.” Eva, who plays a witch in “Dark Shadows,” arrived dressed in character.

“Oohhh,” said Eva when asked about her sex scene with Johnny. Eva and Johnny – who plays a vampire named Barnabas – fly around the room making passionate love – and wreck the place!

Eva laughed and said: “What’s great is that it’s not like the usual sex scene where you go, ‘Oh my God …’ You don’t sleep the night before and you have 20 people in the room. You feel extremely self-conscious and it’s never sexy. This one was just fun. For me, it was like Ken and Barbie having sex—puppet lovemaking. It was very funny. It was hard to keep a straight face.”

The Dark Shadows movie is the cover story of the latest issue of magazine Entertainment Weekly. Featuring interviews with director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp (Barnabas Collins), along with other members of the cast and crew, it details the project’s development and confirms the film’s final budget at $125 million, considerably higher than the $60 million figure Variety reported at the end of last year.

“Barnabas extols the virtues of family and rejects people who are insincere and selfish,” explains Johnny Depp. “We wanted to pit this selfless family-first hero against the ‘Me’ decade.” Depp also speaks about filming scene with original Barnabas actor Jonathan Frid: “He was incredibly sweet about my taking on this character… Putting his eyeballs on me for the first time, all decked out as a slightly different version of him… it had to be pretty weird for him.” The issue is available on newsstands now and can also be downloaded in iPad format.

In other movie news, it’s been confirmed that the official tie-in book for the movie, Dark Shadows: The Art of the Film, will now be available in the United States. The large-format hardback book was originally announced for publication in the United Kingdom last November, promising production artwork, interviews and unseen photography. US readers can now pre-order the book by clicking here.

Between roles in Casino Royale and Kingdom of Heaven, Eva Green has played some pretty tough women. While her upcoming role as Angelique Bouchard in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows flexes a few different muscles, she’ll return to the realm of ass-kicking ladies in Noam Murro’s follow-up to 300, which may or may not be subtitled Battle of Artemisia.

While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Green dropped a few hints about her character Artemisia, noting that the character is based on an person from history. “She’s a commander of the Persian armada,” she said. “So she fights – she’s like a man.” The actress went on to say, “She’s another very, very strong woman that has some balls, that’s for sure.”

Directed by Murro from a script by 300 collaborators Zack Snyder and Kurt Johnstad, the follow-up initially was touted as a prequel based on Frank Miller’s forthcoming Dark Horse miniseries Xerxes, which takes place 10 years before Thermopylae. However, there are now indications that the film is neither a prequel nor a sequel, and could instead chronicle the Battle of Artemisium, a series of naval engagements that took place simultaneously with the more famous Battle of Thermopylae depicted in 300. The film is set for an Aug. 2, 2013, release.
