Thin Man with Johnny Depp - Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher

So, who's gonna be the lucky lady to star opposite Johnny Depp in this brewing remake/reboot of "The Thin Man"? Well, no surprise that the biggest actor on the planet has his pick of leading ladies.

Deadline reports that (deep breath) Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher are among those meeting with director Rob Marshall next week to try to land the gig. Of all the contenders, Green may have the slight edge, having worked alongside him recently in "Dark Shadows" (and if you believe the tabloids, was responsible for wooing him from Vanessa Paradis). But she might not have the comic timing or experience that folks like Stone, Wiig, Blunt, Fisher and even Weisz can bring. Stone is all fresh-faced enthusiasm and poised to become huge after "The Amazing Spider-Man" this summer, while Mulligan seems the odd duck in this group.

The film will go back to Dashiell Hammet's books that originally inspired the six beloved films that starred William Powell and Myrna Loy. "The Thin Man" follows Nick Charles, who marries into money, becomes a charming alcoholic and teams up with his socialite wife Nora to solve a murder. The film has a script from Billy Ray that was recently rewritten by David Koepp, and we guess all this activity means it's Depp's next project. So who should Depp and Marshall pick?
