Tim Burton seems to love to cast his favorite actors in his movies; Johnny Depp has been in seven of his movies and Helena Bonham Carter has been in six.
Michael Sheen voiced the White Rabbit in Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and now he wants him for Dark Shadows.
The Playlist has learned from unnamed sources that Sheen is now in talks to join the cast of Dark Shadows, Burton’s film adaptation of the 1960s gothic soap opera. If he accepts, he will not only join Depp and Carter, but also Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green, Bella Heathcote, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
It’s unknown what role he would be playing. The film is scheduled to begin shooting next month and will be released in 2012.
