According to Deadline Eva Green, who played Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, will be joining Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows.
Green is negotiating to play the role of Angelique, a powerful witch who is tormented and bewitched by her love-hate relationship with Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp).
Dark Shadows is a gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts. The original TV series ran from 1966-1971 and Warner Bros. purchased the rights to make it into a movie in 2007.
Filming will begin in April, with a 2012 release likely.
