Sci Fi Wire recently spoke to producer Graham King, who was promoting his new film The Young Victoria, and he confirmed that Dark Shadows, which will star Johnny Depp, will start production next year.

"We're actually going to shoot that film next September/October with Tim Burton and Johnny," King said.

King also revealed that they're getting the script ready as we speak for next fall's shoot.

"We've been working on the script a lot, even though he's working on Alice," King continued. "We've been given a script. John August wrote the first screenplay. We're making some changes, but the film's going to be in production, as I say, September or October of next year."
