Johnny Depp to Star in 'Mortdecai' for Lionsgate, Director David Koepp

The Wrap:
Johnny Depp is nearing a deal to star in David Koepp's "Mortdecai," an adaptation of Kyril Bonfiglioli's comedic crime novel "The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery" that Lionsgate has acquired after Warner Bros. put it in turnaround, TheWrap has learned.

Koepp will direct from a script by Eric Aronson ("On the Line").

Andrew Lazar of Mad Chance will produce the movie with Depp and his Infinitum Nihil partner Christi Dembrowski.

Lionsgate execs Erik Feig, Michael Paseornek, Gillian Bohrer and James Myers will oversee the project for the studio.

I wish they would do The Thin Man like they had planned. He was perfect for that role. I'm not familiar with this but I'll still give it a chance.
