Jackie Earle Haley and Bella Heathcote are in talks to join the cast of Johnny Depp's Dark Shadows, reports Deadline.

The movie will be Depp's eighth collaboration with director Tim Burton and is based on the '60s supernatural soap that featured vampires, werewolves, ghosts and zombies. The Pirates Of The Caribbean star is headlining the movie as vampire Barnabas Collins, a role originated by Jonathan Frid.

Shutter Island's Haley will portray con man and drifter Willie Loomis, while former Neighbours actress Heathcote is to play the Governess of Collins's estate, Victoria Winters.

Dark Shadows is expected to begin production in April from a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith.
