British newspaper The Guardian ran a piece on England's Pinewood Studios earlier this week, confirming that work has begun on building sets for the new Dark Shadows movie. The feature says that: "projects underway... [include] a huge gothic entrance hall being built as the centrepiece for Tim Burton's latest offering, Dark Shadows."
The article also goes on to say that the studio backlot's "biggest project is the creation of an entire New England fishing village using Pinewood's enormous outdoor water tank, which takes more than a week to fill." Though the article does not say which film this set is earmarked for, it seems likely that it will provide exteriors for the seaside town of Collinsport. To read the full article, click here.
