David Koepp Takes On 'The Thin Man' For Johnny Depp and Rob Marshall

David Koepp has been set to write the script for the remake of the 76-year old film The Thin Man, the remake that Depp set up last year at Warner Bros as a vehicle to re-team with his Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall. Depp will produce with his Infinitum Nihil partner Christi Dembrowski, Langley Park’s Kevin McCormick, Marshall and John DeLuca.

I like The Thin Man. I think Depp could do real well in a role like this.

I loved these movies that Dick Powell and Myrna Loy made. I have all six of them and still watch them sometimes. It is funny though how he is always drinking in them and would these days be considered an alcoholic I guess but he never really gets drunk. The two of them are very funny together. I hope they find the right female to play the part of the wife Nora Charles.
