Rob Marshall and Johnny Depp are working on a remake of The Thin Man. Depp is set to star as Nick Charles, originally played by William Powell in the 1934 version.
We already have who might be playing the wife Nora; Rachel Weisz.
The movie is a comedic detective story about a flirty, married couple who solve crimes. I believe Weisz and Depp are an excellent couple. Depp is still super loaded though; there is The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, and maybe even a Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Hopefully he will be able to fit Thin Man in his schedule.
