It's official: Rob Marshall and John DeLuca will produce a remake of The Thin Man through their LUCAMAR Productions, with Marshall directing. Johnny Depp will star and Jerry Stahl (Bad Boys II) is scripting the "classy and classic project," as Marshall calls it. He is "overjoyed" to work with Depp again, natch (he directed him in this summer's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), and says:"We are looking forward to working with Warner Bros. to create a reinvention of a beloved story."

It's official: Rob Marshall and John DeLuca will produce a remake of The Thin Man through their LUCAMAR Productions, with Marshall directing. Johnny Depp will star and Jerry Stahl (Bad Boys II) is scripting the "classy and classic project," as Marshall calls it. He is "overjoyed" to work with Depp again, natch (he directed him in this summer's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), and says:"We are looking forward to working with Warner Bros. to create a reinvention of a beloved story."

The iconic 1934 film (based on the last novel by Dashiell Hammett) was directed by W. S. Van Dyke and starred William Powell and Myrna Loy (pictured) as witty tipplers Nick and Nora Charles. So now the question is, who should play Nora character to Depp's Nick? And don't forget Asta.

Depp is also producing, as are Christi Dembrowski (Infinitum Nihil) and Kevin McCormick (Langley Park Pictures).
