Young actress Chloe Moretz, who will next be seen in director Martin Scorsese's first foray into 3D with Hugo Cabret, recently revealed that she has joined one of the biggest upcoming movies currently in production. This news sent speculators into a tizzy, guessing everything from The Dark Knight Rises to The Hunger Games.

This is what Chloe Moretz had to say.

"I just booked a huge project last night. You're gonna die when you find out, it's huge! It's big and it's crazy and it involves some really cool actors. And it's HUGE."

We've now gotten word that the project in question may actually be Dark Shadows, an adaptation of the soap opera from director Tim Burton that will star Johnny Depp as vampire Barnabas Collins.

It was /dark-shadows-gets-thomas-mcdonell-as-young-barnabas-collins/announced earlier this week that Thomas McDonell, who is a dead ringer for Johnny Depp, will be playing a young Barnabas Collins. This was first revealed in a post from IMBD that also says Chloe Moretz will play Elizabeth Collins Stoddard's daughter Carolyn.

"Chloe Moretz is going to play Carolyn and that Thomas McDonell is going to play "young Barnabas," which makes sense as he does definitely resemble Johnny Depp..."

Michelle Pfeiffer will be playing Chloe Moretz's daughter, who was nineteen in the series. It is being speculated that the character of Elizabeth Stoddard has been reimagined as a fourteen year old teenager.
