We've wished for years now that someone would get a restraining order keeping Depp and Burton from coming within a mile of each other. And now these pictures are fueling our unease about Depp's turn as the vampire Barnabas Collins in Burton's Dark Shadows, on the heels of their Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland collaborations.

Unless Barnabas is just wearing crazy makeup so he can go out in sunlight. But we're not optimistic.
