The mansion of the ancient Collins family has been constructed in the form of a castle-like domicile at Bourne Woods near Farnham.



Another supernatural movie is currently being made under the direction of "Alice in Wonderland" helmer Tim Burton. Based on the 1960s Gothic horror soap opera of the same title, "Dark Shadows" will revolve around the Collins family and the mysterious curse that has plagued their family.

On-set pictures from the filming location recently hit the web, revealing the Collinwood Manor where the ancient family is going to live in the movie. The castle-like domicile has some gothic architectural elements and was built at Bourne Woods near Farnham.

Johnny Depp will portray the master of the Colinwood Manor, Barnabas, who is turned into vampire and buried alive by a witch name Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green) for breaking her heart. He reunites with his "Alice in Wonderland" co-star Helena Bonham Carter who is going to play a live-in psychiatrist Dr. Julia Hoffman.

The other actors included in the vampire-ridden film are Chloe Moretz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jonny Lee Miller and Bella Heathcote. The script was written by "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" scribe Seth Grahame-Smith, and the movie is planned for 2012 release.
