Burton Skips 3D For “Dark Shadows”

Tim Burton tells The Wrap that his upcoming film adaptation of classic 60’s gothic soap opera “Dark Shadows” will not be shot or post-converted into 3D.

“I have no plans for [3D]. I loved doing “Alice” in 3D. Frankeweenie, gonna do that in 3D. There’s people like, ‘Everything’s gonna be in 3D,’ or ‘I hate 3D!’ I think people should have a choice. I don’t think it should be forced on anybody. At the same time, it’s great, some of it” he says.

Burton also says that the tone of the film is a strange one – “we’re not starting with the simple stuff; we’re sort of getting right in there. You like to kind of sneak up on it a little bit, but this one we just kind of slammed right into it… I’m early into it because it’s a funny tone, and that’s part of what the vibe of the show is, and there’s something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, it’s pretty bad. I’m hoping that it will be – it’s early days, let’s put it – I’m very intrigued by the tone. it’s a real ethereal tone we’re trying to go for and I don’t know yet.”

Shooting is currently underway in London on the film which stars the likes of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley.
