Michael Sheen Will Not Be In Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

While promoting his latest film, Midnight in Paris, actor Michael Sheen shut down all of the recent rumors that he would be starring as Roger Collins in Tim Burton’s upcoming film adaptation of 60s gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows.

Sheen told MTV Movies Blog, “I can’t really talk about it. I’m not going to be doing it, so…”

Even without Sheen, the Seth Grahame-Smith written project already has one hell of an amazing cast that includes: Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz and Thomas McDonell.

Warner Bros. is distributing the film which is due out next year, and if you’ve not yet seen the old TV show, I definitely suggest that you check that out. It’s one of my favorites and I think many feel the same way.
