Heat Vision reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has hired author and screenwriter Jerry Stahl (Permanent Midnight) to write the script for director Rob Marshall's The Thin Man remake starring Johnny Depp.
Based on Dashiell Hammett's detective novel, the Academy Award-nominated 1934 movie starring William Powell and Myrna Loy spawned five sequels. It's described as follows:
Nick and Nora Charles cordially invite you to bring your own alibi to "The Thin Man," the jaunty whodunit that made William Powell and Myrna Loy the champagne elite of sleuthing. Bantering in the doudoir, enjoying walks with beloved dog Asta or matching each other highball for highball and clue for clue, they combined screwball romance with mystery.
Depp will produce with his Infinitum Nihil partner Christi Dembrowski. Kevin McCormick is producing via his studio-based Langley Park.
