Tim Burton is one busy fella. Not only is the director putting the finishing touches on the big-screen adaptation of Dark Shadows, but he’s also helming a stop-motion, 3D expansion of his short Frankenweenie and serving as executive producer on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. MTV caught up with Burton and got the details on the projects he’s working on this year.

He said that not every member of the Dark Shadows cast — it includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Helena Bonham Carter — was familiar with the source material, a gothic soap opera that aired daily on ABC from 1966 to 1971. However, they quickly caught on to its “strange vibe”:

It’s got such a strange vibe. And it’s not something that a lot of people necessarily know. You’re trying to do a weird soap opera. I felt really lucky, because the cast is really good. People like Michelle [Pfeiffer] grew up watching it. Some of the cast knew about it. Some didn’t, but they were all game for it — getting into the weird spirit of what Dark Shadows was. It has a weird sense of heightened melodrama. There was a generation of us who would run home from school to watch it. That’s probably why we were such bad students. We should have been doing homework; we were watching Dark Shadows instead. It was hard to put into words the tone it was. It had a weird seriousness, but it was funny in a way that wasn’t really funny. We just had to feel our way through it to find the tone. We didn’t do any real rehearsals, because the cast all came in at different times. But there was an old photo of the [original] cast which I always remembered, so a couple days before shooting, we got the whole cast together to take a similar shot so everyone could see each other and get that vibe from doing a group photo. That helped set the tone more than anything.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ 300 prequel hasn’t found its male star yet, but the movie is zeroing in on its female lead. Warner Bros.

Eva Green has entered negotiations to play Artemisia in the movie, which is currently working with the title 300: Battle of Artemisia. Noam Murro (Smart People) is directing.

The epic follow-up to 2006′s Gerard Butler action pic 300 sees the Persian king-turned-god Xerxes lead an army against Greek forces, who have little training but are under the guidance of a general named Themistokles. (The giant battle at the center of this movie is supposed to occur at the same time as the fighting in 300.)

Green would play a ruthless, gold-covered goddess who persuades Xerxes to amass his army and helps lead them into battle.

The studio is hoping to start production in the first quarter of 2012. Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, Bernie Goldman, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Thomas Tull are producing.

British actress Green may be best known to American audiences for playing James Bond love interest Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale or appearing in the international hit The Golden Compass. She recently wrapped shooting Dark Shadows, Warners’ big-screen take of the gothic soap opera starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton.

Below is an excerpt from an article by Elli at BondMovies.com wherein she shares her thoughts on the newest Bond girls and talks about her top 5 favorites, including Eva as Vesper Lynd. You can read the full article here. :)

1. Vesper Lynd
The drop-dead gorgeous Eva Green is hands down the best Bond girl of all time. A working-woman with overtly feminist tendencies, an insatiable ambition, and a secret plan, Vesper is the first — and maybe the only — real, complex woman in the Bond series. She is passionate. She is forgiving. She is unforgiving. She denies Bond on several occasions — and she’s not playing hard to get, she’s just saying no. She’s beautiful. And, most importantly, she gets under James’ skin like no other woman ever has. In essence, Vesper Lynd makes James Bond who he is. No other Bond girl can make that claim.

Rien ne semble arrêter l’ascension d’Eva Green. La brune ténébreuse vient de tourner dans Dark Shadows, de Tim Burton. Au printemps 2012, elle sera aussi à l’affiche de Perfect Sense, de David Mackenzie, avec Ewan McGregor. L’égérie de la joaillerie Montblanc pose pour nous dans ce numéro et se confie.

Avec son visage d’une pâleur extrême et ses yeux bleus immenses qu’elle charbonne, Eva Green a la beauté gothique des peintures symbolistes. A la fois androgyne et coquette, l’ex-James Bond girl déborde d’une énergie qui se noue et se dénoue, à l’image de ses jambes, qu’elle tresse pendant qu’elle se raconte. Fonceuse, perfectionniste, sélective dans le choix de ses rôles, la fille de Marlène Jobert aime le cinéma indépendant, les personnages au charme vénéneux. Comme la prof saphique qu’elle jouait dans Cracks, de Jordan Scott, ou la sorcière séductrice qu’elle incarne dans le nouveau Tim Burton, Dark Shadows (sortie prévue le 9 mai 2012), au côté de Johnny Depp. Celle que Bernardo Bertolucci a lancée dans Innocents, en 2003, et a décrite “si belle que c’en est indécent”, se révèle une anxieuse, hypertimide, remettant sans cesse son image en question. Peur d’être trop lisse, marre d’être vue comme une femme fatale, elle rêve de montrer son côté abrupt. La comédienne, bien que française, est installée à Londres depuis six ans et n’a pratiquement tourné qu’en anglais. Il y a deux ans, elle déclarait au Times : “Si seulement Tim Burton m’appelait…” Aujourd’hui, elle avoue à L’Express Styles : “Si Jacques Audiard me faisait signe… de battre mon coeur s’arrêterait !”
