Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have no plans to start seeing other people.

The dynamic duo are set to make dark movie magic together for the eighth time with "Dark Shadows," an adaptation of the gothic soap opera that ran on ABC from 1966-71.

Depp will be playing Barnabas Collins, the charming and cunning vampire originally portrayed by Jonathan Frid. Collins has a knack for getting into supernatural adventures involving witches, werewolves, ghosts, zombies, time travel and parallel universes.

No word yet on which of those elements Burton's films will be concentrating on, though our first guess would be "all."

According to Collider, John August's "Dark Shadows" script is currently being rewritten by Seth Grahme-Smith, the author of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies." Filming is set to begin in April.

Yes, this is Tim and Johnny's eighth film together. For the record, here are the previous seven:

"Edward Scissorhands" (1990)

"Ed Wood" (1994)

"Sleepy Hollow" (1999)

"Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (2005)

"Corpse Bride" (2005)

"Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (2007)

"Alice in Wonderland" (2010)

We wouldn't be surprised if Depp was lurking about somewhere in "Planet of the Apes," too.
