Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter are ready to bite into Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows.' According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pfeiffer is in negotiations to join the vampire flick opposite Johnny Depp, who stars as Barnabas Collins, a self-loathing vampire living in a Maine manor searching for his lost love. Pfeiffer would play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, the reclusive matriarch of the Collins family. And Deadline reports that, although talks have not yet started, Helena Bonham Carter is in line to play Dr. Julia Hoffman, a specialist in psychology and rare blood disorders who wants to cure Barnabas of his thirst for blood. Pfeiffer worked with Burton when she co-starred as Catwoman in 1992's 'Batman Returns.' Bonham Carter is, of course, Burton's soul mate on and off the big screen. Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green and Bella Heathcote have already been cast in the film, which Warner Bros. has scheduled for an April start.
Now that the original Terminator is no longer the Governator (and has Tweeted he wants to act again -- at least in movies), interest is spiking on continuing the Terminator sci-fi franchise (despite the abysmal failure of the last entry, 'Terminator Salvation'). According to Deadline, Universal is interested in continuing the series, especially since they're looking for a new vehicle for 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise director Justin Lin. Deadline adds that William Wisher, James Cameron's collaborator on 'Terminator 2,' has already written a 24-page treatment for the next film and a four-page concept outline for a sixth one. His version adds more time travel to the post-apocalyptic battleground of 'Salvation.'
