Johnny Depp Will Be Rob Marshall's Thin Man

They've done such great work together on the Pirates movies, we're excited to hear they are collaborating again.

Warner Bros. confirmed this morning that they will be reuniting director Rob Marshall with his swashbuckling superstar, Johnny Depp, for a remake of the 1934 film, The Thin Man. In the flick, Depp will play lead Nick Charles, a private detective married to a wealthy socialite, Nora, who also works along side him solving cases.

A comedy-mystery, eh? That's sounds rather fun, actually! Johnny is a very funny guy and he really isn't given enough opportunities to show that!

Someone who is just as excited as us (perhaps more so) that the film is forging ahead is Rob himself. In a statement about the film, he explained:

“John [Deluca, producer] and I are overjoyed at the idea of working with Johnny again, especially on such a classy and classic project. We are also thrilled to be partnering this time with such wonderful producers as Christi Dembroski and Kevin McCormick, and we are looking forward to working with Warner Bros. to create a reinvention of a beloved story.”

Sounds like it's going to be quite a project - but who will play Nora, we wonder???

She's got to be a beauty, for sure, but also someone with a lot of wit and charm.

Any suggestions?

    Perez, you're a fucking moron…just do the research, how many movies have Johnny and Rob Marshall worked on together? Here's a hint…1…1 movie. So once again you have no idea what you're talking about, especially since the only movie they've worked on together has not been released yet. I don't know how you can call yourself a journalist and sleep at night, your stories are riddled with misinformation.

    Who cares about Nora? Who will play Asta?

    The Thin Man is actually a book written by Dashiel Hammett - same guy that wrote The Maltese Falcon. He wrote a few novels with the wonderful characters of Nick and Nora (and Asta!). The original movie perez references was the first adaptation of the book, not where the original material comes from

    I'm a huge fan of the classics & really hope they treat this with loads of care & respect. I don't want them to damage the integrity nor legacy of the originals. I do think Johnny would be great for William Powell's role, though I'm nervous on who they'll get for Myrna Loy's Nora. Someone who is sophisticated, witty, charming & beautiful…not just pretty. I think that's gonna be though.
