It looks like the Johnny Depp vehicle The Thin Man might not be a good fit for Warner Bros right now.
Rob Marshall was set to direct the remake of the 1934 classic, but word is he’s going Into The Woods for his next project.
No word from Warner on any problems with the detective film itself, but the underperformance of Depp’s last remake, the vampire soap Dark Shadows, might be a clue.
It could be Warner Bros are waiting to see if the high budget Lone Ranger reboot finds the stirrup before investing in yet another $100 million remake.
Or maybe the recently single Nick just needs some time to find a new Nora!
