Your First Look at Johnny Depp on the Dark Shadows Set

Here’s your first look at Tim Burton’s long-in-the-making “Dark Shadows” big-screen remake, starring Johnny Depp as tortured vampire Barnabas Collins. The gothic tale, about the life of Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts and other assorted supernatural shenanigans, is due out May 11, 2012.

The huge notable cast includes Depp, Chloe Moretz, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Thomas McDonell, Jonny Lee Miller, and Bella Heathcote.

According to these images, though, ol Barnie (as he likes to be called, I hear) might eventually shrug off all that tortured stuff, because this doesn’t just show Depp (in heavy make-up and all) strolling around in the sun on the beach, but that’s actress Bella Heathcote, playing Barnabas’ love interest Victoria Winters walking hand-in-hand with him.

Depp as Collins, though, er, is this a comedy or something?
