|(Talk about a great cast!)|
Now the news that this post evolves around: my dearest Michelle Pfeiffer is in negotiation to star in this! This could mean:
1. Another Pfeiffer film!
2. Reunion for the Pfeiffer/Burton team!
3. Michelle starring with Johnny Depp!
I so LOVE the cast. Johnny Depp has always been among my favorites and Helena Bonham Carter is a great actress. It will be good for Michelle to surround herself with real actors again. Depp will play a vampire named Barnabas Collins, who is looking for a lost love while Helena Bonham Carter is to play Dr .Julia Hoffman – a specialist in both psychology and rare blood diseases – who helps Barnabas heal his thirst for blood.
I really hope she'll say yes. She's allegedly Tim Burton's first choice for Elizabeth Stoddard – the matriarch who has become an outsider in her house since the vanishing of her husband 10 years before. I really want her to portray this type of character. It's challenging for her and I love it when her talent gets tested (and afterwards higher rated) like that. And besides, she did Gary Marshall a favor by starring in 'Valentine's Day'; so why wouldn't she do the same for Burton? On the other hand, she's busy filming two other movies this year... All we can do is wait and hope silently she'll do it.
