Johnny Depp has teamed up with Tim Burton to star in vampire movie 'Dark Shadows', due to start filming in spring 2011.
The movie has been in the works for three years, and Warner Bros. has finally given the green light for the project to begin shooting in April, Heat Vision Blog reports.
Depp, 47, will play a vampire named Barnabas Collins, who lives in Maine, and is searching for a lost love.
The casting news may be bad news for 'Snow White and the Huntsman', in which Depp was asked to play the role of huntsman, as the movie is planned to go into production around the same time.
Tom Hardy had already turned down the opportunity to star in the fairytale reimagining due to schedule clashes.
