For vampire film Dark Shadows, US superstar Johnny Depp had his pick of any director in the world, while director Tim Burton had his pick of any script.
Yet here they are together again. Dark Shadows, opening here today, is the eighth film they’ve done together over the past 22 years.
Based on the cult ‘70s TV show of the same name, Dark Shadows tells the story of Barnabas Collins (Depp), a vampire who is inadvertently set free after spending 200 years in a coffin.
Since they first paired up on Edward Scissorhands in 1990, Depp, 48, and Burton, 53, have never ever put a foot wrong.
But how much longer can - or should - their partnership endure?
