Johnny Depp bewitched by Eva Green in Dark Shadows?

Eva Green, the lovely French actress who portrayed Vesper Lynd in the 2006 Bond film Casino Royale, is reportedly in talks to appear in the latest Johnny Depp/Tim Burton collaboration, a feature film version of 60’s cult gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. According to Deadline, Green is in negotiations to play Angelique, a witch who cursed Barnabas Collins (to be played by Depp) to an eternity as a vampire. Angelique was previously played by Lara Parker in the original program, and by Lysette Anthony in the revival. Her tormented former lover, vampire with a conscience Barnabas Collins, has been played by Jonathan Frid and Ben Cross (Sarek in the recent Star Trek reboot).

This comes on the heels of the news that Jackie Earle Haley (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Watchmen, Human Target) is in talks to play Willie Loomis, the drunken caretaker of Collinwood who unwittingly releases Barnabas from his crypt.
