In 1991 they did a remake starring Ben Cross as the immortal vampire. It lacked "zing".
They reported last night that Johnny Depp is a producer of the big screen remake and will even star as Barnabas. Made me stop and think. Johnny Depp as Barnabas? Hmmmmm. Not an automatic pick, but could work.
Anyone else out there old enough to remember Dark Shadows? What do you think of Johnny Depp as Barnabas?
