Deadline New York has the news: “Grahame-Smith, who made his Hollywood entry writing novels that put a macabre twist to literary classics and historical figures, has just gotten the high profile job of writing the new draft of Dark Shadows, the Tim Burton-directed adaptation of the 60s daytime serial that will star Johnny Depp as the vampire Barnabas Collins.”
Back in February, we interviewed the author about his work. During the interview, he discussed his new book (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), the new MTV show he helped create, and the process of writing the screenplay for a Tim Burton-produced adaptation of the Lincoln mashup.
