The flawless actor has hired David Koepp to write the screenplay for The Thin Man.
David, who wrote Jurassic Park and Spider-Man, is sure to adapt this story into movie gold.
Director Rob Marshall has been brought on board as well.
As Johnny Depp will produce and star in the film, this project reunites the two who both worked on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Wanna know what the story's like?
Well, if you've read any of the classic books, you already know, but if not, it centers around a murder-mystery solving married couple — Nick and Nora Charles.
Johnny will of course play Nick, but nobody knows who Nora will be…
Hmmm, maybe Olivia Wilde? We could see that.
