Warner Bros. Stalls THE THIN MAN with Johnny Depp

     June 21, 2012

Director Rob Marshall now has a little more time to find a fitting actress to star opposite Johnny Depp in The Thin Man, as Warner Bros. has put a halt to production on the remake.  Depp was set to star as Nick Charles, one half of a married couple who solves murder mysteries while bantering back and forth and almost getting killed themselves.  This delay is, at the moment, less of a behind-the-scenes melodrama and more due to practicality.  Deadline reports that Depp is eager to take a break between films.  This also allows Marshall to move forward with his long-gestating Disney project, Into the Woods, a feature version of Stephen Sondheim’s fairy-tale musical.  Though The Thin Man was never officially greenlit, there is also some talk of budget concerns, which will likely push back the planned November start while the particulars are sorted out.
