Tim Burton's Next Projects

IMDB lists three projects "in development" for Tim Burton. These are:
1. Maleficent (2013)
2. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2011)
3. Dark Shadows (2011)

This site started the Maleficent rumors. Maleficent is the name of the evil fairy godmother who casts a spell on Sleeping Beauty in the 1959 Disney movie of the same name. Apparently, Burton will be doing a version of Sleeping Beauty from Maleficent's viewpoint.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is news to me. It sounds pretty self-explanatory, though, doesn't it? It is based on a recently released book by Seth Grahame-Smith, who is the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Here's a blurb on it.

Dark Shadows is something I've been looking forward to since I heard about it. This is a movie adaptation of an old supernatural-themed soap opera of the same name. Johnny Depp will play a vampire named Barnabas Collins, who was one of the main characters on the show.
