Dark Shadows fans are hoping to reunite the cast of the 1991 Dark Shadows "revival" series in Tarrytown, N.Y., in July.

The event takes place 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday July 27, 2012 at Lyndhurst Estate, the filming location of House of Dark Shadows.Organizers have invited the 24 surviving cast members of the 1991 series and are posting updates for the event at its Facebook page.

Scheduling conflicts might keep some cast members from attending. Festival organizers have mentioned that Jim Fyfe (Willie Loomis) will be on vacation in July, while Joseph Gordon-Levitt (David Collins) will probably be detained by promotional obligations to the upcoming feature films, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper. Ben Cross recently said on his Facebook page that he was unaware of the reunion. Obligations to his new Cinemax series, Banshee, might override the festival, since he is not expected to arrive for filming in America until mid-July.

The 1991 Cast Reunion is completely separate from the Dark Shadows Festival
