Just a few days ago, we told you that Jackie Earle Haley (Human Target, Bolden!), and Bella Heathcote (Beneath Hill 60, Now) were in talks to join the cast of director Tim Burton’s long-awaited, big-screen adaptation of Dark Shadows, alongside Johnny Depp.
Jackie Earle Haley would portray Willie Loomis, a small-time con artist who, upon discovering a portrait of Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) wearing several luxurious jewels, decides to break into his coffin and rob him. Instead, he wakes the vampire from his slumber and is enslaved and Bella Heathcoate would play Victoria Winters, the young governess of the Collins estate.
Now, Deadline reports that Eva Green (Womb, Camelot) has scored the lead role of Angelique, in director Tim Burton‘s forthcoming film. The character is a witch who has a love-hate relationship with the vampire Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp).
A release date for Dark Shadows has yet to be confirmed.
