Sam Sarkar, director of development over at Johnny Depp’s production outfit Infinitum-Nihil, spoke to MTV recently on the state of the Dark Shadows project.

He would not confirm or deny whether or not Tim Burton was attached to direct, but stated that the project is in full swing and they’re working with Warner Brothers.  Additionally, it was stated that, when Dan Curtis was still among the living, he gave his blessing to the project.

If the film proves successful, there is potential there for a series of sequels.
