Depp's Dark Shadow may not fall on Tim Burton

Warner Bros.' big screen version of the TV vampire soap opera cult classic Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins, is reportedly gearing up for production, but the schedule of its rumored director Tim Burton appears to have impacted the project.
MTV recently caught up with Sam Sarkar, director of development for Depp's production company Infinitum, who advised them that Dark Shadows "is very active. ... The studio will be making some announcements regarding it pretty soon. Very soon, probably."

Sarkar was coy, however, when asked about Burton, neither confirming nor denying his involvement with the project. The reason for that appears to lie in Wonderland.

Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that the start date for filming Dark Shadows may have to be postponed because of production on Burton's Alice in Wonderland, also starring Depp, which Disney has slated for release on March 5, 2010. Unfortunately, Warners has already reserved studio space to shoot Dark Shadows, with a Depp insider telling DHD, "It is our intention to still start the movie in the fall. We're trying to work it out. ... And Tim Burton is Johnny's first and only choice to direct."
Thanks to Pam for sending me this.
