Tim Burton has revealed Dark Shadows will not be in 3D.

The acclaimed filmmaker used 3D technology for Alice In Wonderland, but insisted he won't be doing the same for the upcoming big-screen remake of the 60s TV soap.

"I have no plans for that. I loved doing Alice in 3D. Frankenweenie (Tim's upcoming film), gonna do that in 3D," he told TheWrap.

Tim said they are still at the "early stages" of Dark Shadows, which stars frequent collaborator Johnny Depp as 18th century vampire Barnabas Collins.

"I just had an immediate connection with him. We're friends and colleagues, and we've always taken the tack of not working together just to work together. It's got to be the right part, the right movie, all of that sort of thing," he continued.

"There's a good sort of non-communicative communication, you know. Because especially back then I was not a good verbal communicator, and he's a bit similar, but there's more of a psychic kind of connection, I would say, that sort of has remained."

Eva Green, Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Moretz also have roles in the film, scheduled for a 2012 release.
