Bella Heathcoate And Jackie Earle Haley In Talks For DARK SHADOWS
Tim Burton is bringing the 60s TV soap opera DARK SHADOWS to the big screen, and Deadline is reporting that Bella Heathcoate and Jackie Earle Haley are in talks to star in the film.
Johnny Depp is already signed to play vampire Barnabas Collins, and Deadline reports that Bella Heathcoate is Burton’s choice to play the governess of the Collins estate, Victoria Winters. Heathcoate was testing for the title role in Snow White and the Huntsman, but Kristen Stewart is now the front runner.
Haley is in talks to play Willie Loomis on Dark Shadows, a con artist who sees a portrait of Barnabas in the Collins estate, and takes a big interest in the jewels that Collins wears. He breaks into Barnabas coffin, and is attacked by the vampire. He then becomes the servant of Collins. Haley has most recently been seen in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake as Freddy Krueger.
