********************************************
Hello, Dark Shadows Fan,

ShadowGram (SG), The Official Newsletter & News Source for Dark Shadows (DS), announces the following breaking news.

- JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT STARRING IN 2 NEW FILMS
- KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT NEWS

**** JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT
NEW FILM IN RELEASE NEXT FILM OPENS AUG. 7

Joe (1991 DS' David, Daniel) stars as "Tom," a greeting card author, in the new movie (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, in nationwide release as of 7-16.

Publicity: He "co-stars with Zooey Deschanel in a bittersweet romantic comedy-drama that jumps back in forth in time and includes unexpected touches like a big musical number, as Gordon-Levitt's character reflects on the arc of a relationship that lasted exactly 500 days..... The film premiered before a sold-out crowd of nearly 2,000 at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and got very positive notices."

Joe co-stars hidden behind an elaborate mask, make-up, and prosthetics as the villain "Cobra Commander" in the highly-anticipated action feature G.I. JOE: RISE OF THE COBRA. It opens nationwide 8-7.

More information and photos will be in the new SG #115 print issue.

She also asks SG to report: "I am thrilled that Opera News has published my piece FATAL ATTRACTION: THE STAR AND THE STALKER in the August 2009 issue now available on new stands.

American writer Claudia Gray (Evernight, Stargazer) had this to say in an interview on ninemsn.com about her popularity with Australian readers and why vampire fiction is the "latest literary fad":

The modern era of the sexy, romantic vampire probably began with Barnabas Collins of Dark Shadows and of course the Anne Rice books.

Why fact check when you can throw in the word "probably"?  lol

***** UPDATING NEW DS FILM PROJECT WITH JOHNNY DEPP & TIM BURTON

Almost 2 years ago (7-26-07), SG announced a planned new DS movie with Johnny Depp. SG has updated official developments since then. The screenwriter is John August. There are no specifics yet as toscript, casting, or other production details. SG will announce confirmed news.

Johnny's new film "Public Enemies" opens 7-3. At its red-carpet premiere 6-23 in Westwood, CA,, he spoke about the DS project: Entertainment Weekly 6-25: At the LA premiere of Public Enemies, Johnny Depp confirmed that he'll star in an upcoming big screen version of the cult 1960's show Dark Shadows, directed by Tim Burton. Rumors of the project have circulated ever since Depp, an admitted fan of the gothic soap opera, acquired the rights to the series in 2007. Producer Richard D. Zanuck confirmed Depp and Burton's involvement last December, but this marks the first time that Depp has publicly said that Burton will direct. "Dark Shadows with Tim will also be down the line," Depp told EW June 23 in LA. "Tim has to finish [Alice in] Wonderland before he can start work on the next film. I love what he did with that. I think people are going to be so excited and satisfied when they see that film. Some of his best work. And I will be thrilled to work with him again on Dark Shadows. I was a big fan of it when I was a kid and I think it is another of those perfect projects for Tim to reimagine."

***** DAVID SELBY TO GUEST ON "MAD MEN"

David (Quentin) filmed an episode of the Emmy-winning AMC series earlier this month. He plays "Horace Cook" in the show set in NY's intensely competitive Madison Avenue advertising agency world in 1960. No air date has been announced but the drama starts its 3rd season 8-16.

**** NEW DS MERCHANDISE

--- 2 DVDS TO BE RELEASED

"The Vampire Curse" and "The Haunting of Collinwood" are due 9-15 from MPI. Each is a single disc running approximately 3 hours apiece. They will be available at WalMart and other retailers at a $19.98 suggested retail price.

MPI tells SG: "`Curse' compiles episodes and scenes detailing Barnabas when he is cursed in 1795 and then arrives at Collinwood in 1967. There is a new video interview with Jonathan Frid. `Haunting' has episodes and scenes from 1968-69 chronicling how Quentin's ghost drives the Collins Family out of Collinwood."

--- 2 NEW AUDIODRAMAS TO BE RELEASED

These original stories on CD are recorded by DS cast members. "Echoes of Insanity" stars John Karlen as "Willie" and :Lara Parker as "Angelique." It is due in July and will be available at the Newark Festival. Publicity: "Framed by Barnabas to protect his secret, Willie lies injured in the Windcliff Institute, haunted by the memories of his ordeal. His only hope is the mysterious golden angel who appears in his dreams, but does she have her own agenda?"

Another new audiodrama recorded by Marie Wallace and Nancy Barrett is in the works. SG will report updated news in the coming SG #115 newsletter.

**** DS ARTICLE IN PARADE MAGAZINE

A photo of Jonathan Frid as "Barnabas" and information about DS and the Newark Fest will be in the Personality Parade column on Page 2 of Parade Magazine 7-5. The magazine is "seen by some 80 million readers in 400 U.S. papers each Sunday."

**** DS ON CHILLER TV

Last summer, the cable/satellite Chiller TV Network showed the theatrical release versions of both films "House of Dark Shadows" (1970) and "Night of Dark Shadows" (1971). The network ran a marathon of the entire 1991 DS revival TV series in March and again earlier this month. There are no current plans to regularly schedule any DS series on the channel, but Chiller occasionally may air the films or 1991 program.

**** NOTE:

Please send SG your photos and reports from the upcoming Fest, plus any articles, reviews, or other material you may find about the new DS film, David's "Mad Men" episode, the new compilation DVDs, audiodramas, DS on Chiller, and other DS-related news items. Use the SG addresses below.

Those sending in material will be named as Contributors in upcoming print issues. You also may receive a complimentary Contributor's Copy for major contributions of information, funds, stamps, supplies, publicity, etc.

A recent article in the LA Times about True Blood's sexy vampire and his devoted fan base, most of them females, inspired this letter from Jim Pierson:
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-feedback14-2009jun14,0,5417727.story
see: The blood lust goes way back

The original article:  'True Blood' devotees are thirsty for more

Calendar Events / Announcements '09 I / Jeopardy Show
« on: June 06, 2009, 02:37:31 AM »
I turned on Jeopardy a short while ago during the second half of the show, and the first thing I heard is this answer that finished the category-- "I remember this 1966 - 1971 soap opera about vampires, witches, and werewolves."  And the first person that rang in gave the correct question; it's too bad he finished in 2nd place.
