Back in the Shadows Again

Dark Shadows, that is. I've written an audio drama script for Big Finish Productions (UK), tentatively titled Dark Shadows: Path of Fate, and it's currently in production. David Selby and Lara Parker, from the original TV series, appear their respective roles as Quentin Collins and Angelique Bouchard. (Well, their voices "appear," anyway.)

The release date has not been finalized, but I anticipate late 2008, early 2009. The production will be available on CD and MP3 download.

Yes, that's the script, whose deadline(s) kept me hopping for a while. Whee-ew!

I'm looking forward to this. Mark, I have to admit I've always been a fan of that old soap...and look forward to the new film which should be released within the next couple years. I understand Johnny Depp is taking on the role of Barnabus.

Very cool.

Thanks, Stewart. I'm hoping for good things from the movie -- in more ways than one.

Johnny Depp has said he's always wanted to play Barnabas Collins. I think he'd be just the fellow to pull it off, too. I'm not so sure about Tim Burton directing, though. I like some of his films, but I don't know whether he's really the guy to capture the atmosphere DS really needs.

I hope Burton will follow "Sleepy Hollow" in tone. I'm hoping he doesn't stylize it too much. You know, it would be interesting to see an anthology of current authors tackling different elements of the DS mythos.
