Johnny Depp Thin Man

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

Chicago's Rob Marshall to Direct Into The Woods Film Adaptation For Disney!

The musical theater lover inside us is doing a giddy little happy dance!

Rob Marshall is no stranger to working with the House of Mouse. This is the guy behind the last chapter of Pirates of The Caribbean and their version of Annie. But now, things are about to get a whole lot more interesting for Rob as he has signed a two year contract with the company that not only lines him up to possibly direct the next Pirates venture, but also has led to a pretty incredible announcement.

Rob's first project under this new contract will be to direct a film adaptation of Into the Woods, the classic Stephen Sondheim musical about the real stories behind some famous fairytale characters. Rob reveals that the idea to make the Broadway fave into a film came to him while he was still working on Pirates. It instantly rang James Lapine, Sondheim's partner, to throw the idea around. Rob explains that bringing the project to Disney was spawned after James was concerned the project would just stay in "development for another 10 years." Such was not the case with Disney, as Rob explains:

Johnny Depp Has An Exciting New Movie Project On Deck!

Johnny Depp The Thin Man

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.

Johnny Depp Will Be Rob Marshall's Thin Man

Filed under: Johnny DeppFiona Apple

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?

sophia loren gets honored

What a lovely gesture!

Yesterday, legendary actress Sophia Loren was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood with a tribute ceremony, after having also received a lifetime achievement Oscar back in 1991.

Here's what Sophia had to say while at the Academy's tribute ceremony for the actress:

"The Academy Award changed my life completely. It helped me to believe in myself and encouraged me to push my own artistic boundaries."

"There are no words to describe my emotions right now. It is hard to imagine that 50 years have passed since I welcomed my Oscar to my home."

Speeches at the ceremony were given by Tom Hanks, Sophia's Nine director Rob Marshall, and her son Edoardo Ponti who said the following about his mother:

"We are here because we love you and you deserve every single thing."

So sweet. She's accomplished SO MUCH and looks A-MAZING at 76 years old!!!

Congratulations, Sophia! We're very happy for you!

Disney Has Script For Pirates 5 But Johnny Depp Wants To 'Hold Off'

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny Depp

Johnny Depp Patience

Ready for a fifth Pirates of the Carribean movie before the fourth installment even hits theaters?

Disney is! Jerry Bruckheimer is! Even director Rob Marshall is in! Unfortunately for hardcore fans, Johnny Depp (the most important ingredient) isn't, so they're going to have to wait a little bit.

In a recent interview, Johnny Depp shares that while he's definitely not opposed to another sequel, pending a good "story, script and filmmaker", he's not quite ready to jump aboard another pirate ship just yet.

"It's not something where I would say, 'Let's shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012. We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me."

Yay! An actor who actually cares about the quality, not quantity of his work! That's why we love you Johnny! That and your gorgeous face. Ha!

Still, the franchise should be ready to resume once Johnny decides it's time for another because the screenplay for a possible fifth installment was reportedly delivered to Disney this past weekend!

Would U like to see another Pirates movie ASAP or should Disney follow Johnny's lead and hold off?

Disney Hires A Writer For Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: On EVEN Stranger Tides

pirates of the caribbean 5 gets a writer

Disney has officially closed a deal with Terry Rossio to write the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film. For those who are unaware, Rossio co-wrote the first fifteen four Pirates films.

Looks like Disney WON'T be bringing back Terry's writing buddy Ted Elliot this time though…but maybe they'll give him another shot for the eleventh or twelfth film!

On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall will be returning for the fifth Pirates if all goes according to plan, and it appears that Johnny Depp is pretty much set to return as well, although it's not a locked deal as of yet.

How many more sequels are they going to make? Isn't it nearly time for them to reboot the franchise or something? LOLs.

Are U pumped for Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 and/or 4?
