MAY 09, 2011 (New York, NY) – Rob Marshall and John DeLuca have officially signed on to the Warner Bros. planned remake of THE THIN MAN. The pair will produce the film via their LUCAMAR Productions banner. Award-winning director Marshall is also confirmed to direct. The film will reteam Marshall with Johnny Depp, who is attached to star in the project. The two just worked together on PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES which Disney will be releasing on May 20.

LUCAMAR Productions joins Infinitum Nihil Company and Langley Park Pictures as production companies on the project. In addition to DeLuca and Marshall, Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski are producing on behalf of Infinitum Nihil, and Kevin McCormick is producing on behalf of his Langley Park Pictures. Jerry Stahl is attached as screenwriter. Says Marshall, "John and I are overjoyed at the idea of working with Johnny again, especially on such a classy and classic project. We are also thrilled to be partnering this time with such wonderful producers as Christi Dembroski and Kevin McCormick, and we are looking forward to working with Warner Bros. to create a reinvention of a beloved story."

CAA and Michael Gendler of Gendler & Kelly negotiated the deal with Warner Bros. on behalf of Marshall and DeLuca. THE THIN MAN is a remake of the Oscar-Nominated 1934 film starring William Powell and Myrna Loy.

Rachel Weisz May Star Opposite Depp In The Thin Man Remake

Rachel Weisz May Star Opposite Depp In The Thin Man Remake image
Rob Marshall and Johnny Depp are working on a remake of The Thin Man in which Depp would take the role of Nick Charles, originally played by William Powell in the 1934 version. And now, we know who may end up playing his wife, Nora. Warner Bros. is considering Rachel Weisz.

The movie is a comedic detective story about a flirty, married couple who solve crimes. The 1934 version was nominated for an Academy Award, but if you picture this premise in a 2011 wrapper, you’ll probably end up with something like The Tourist, Killers, Knight and Day, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, or a dozen other movies with similar premises. The Thin Man was a good film, but that idea has been done so many different ways since, to differentiate the redo from the pack they’ll need special casting. Weisz and Depp together on screen seems like a natural fit.

Word from one of our most trusted sources is that the film is still in development and they’re waiting for Johnny Depp to make time for it in his schedule. Remember, he’s still pretty loaded with movies like The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, and maybe even a Pirates of the Caribbean 5 also in his future. Warner Bros. would like to find a way to squeeze Thin Man in ahead of those films, but for now they’re still working out the details. Because of that, Weisz isn’t actually in talks for the part yet, but she’s somewhere at the top of their wishlist for the moment when everyone involved is ready to make a move.

For her part, Rachel Weisz could really use a blockbuster, or for that matter a movie people actually show up to see at all. Her most recent work hasn’t exactly caught fire. She was last seen in The Whistelblower, which I bet many of you didn’t even know exists. Her next few movies seem destined to be equally obscure, though if Oz: The Great and Powerful ever gets going, she should create a stir as a witch. But barring that, teaming up with the ever reliable Johnny Depp in something like The Thin Man is always a good way to remind everyone of just how good you are.

Geez - I read the comment section in the Deadline Hollywood article. Brutal. I guess it falls in line with a lot of the comments that site gets with it's articles about casting choices, but they all really tore into it. Disappointing to read.

I agree BaxterPeanut! My fear for the casting of Nora Charles (one of my all time favorite movie heroines) is that they will cast for looks rather than comic timing! Myrna Loy as Nora was the epitome of a San Francisco socialite, charming, refined and smart...she also was witty, capable of the double entendre and could spit back sophisticated repartee without blinking an eye. This will be one hard role to cast.

And IMO Penelope Cruz' accent gets in the way of her dialogue. I'm holding out for either Emily Blunt or Jessica Biel... crossfingers.gif

While she might not be a popular choice, and is kind of more a TV star now - although she has a solid movie resume - I think Mary Louise Parker (the lead on Weeds) would be great. She's more age appropriate to Depp (it bothers me when so many male leads get such younger co-stars) and she engages in great back and forth, clever banter and has the chops to go toe to toe. Just another option. I know the chances would be slim and none.

I don't have that much of an issue with Rachel Weitz either, as her name is under consideration. She had some good chemistry and witty dialogue in 'The Mummy'. Whoever it is, I agree with you guys - the female lead is really, REALLY vital to making this a success. You're absolutely right. This needs to be a real CO-STARRING vehicle, not Depp driving the engine alone.

I like Rachel Weisz--but admit I've only seen The Constant Gardener which she won the Oscar for Best Actress--great film that not a lot of people saw, too. I think she's pretty versatile....

I've also heard Kate Winslet & Cate Blanchett's name thrown in the mix, too, but all rumors.

Just a bit from Marshall I found in an article about Johnny:


QUOTE
The fourth Pirates has given birth to another promising union, Depp helping select Rob Marshall for the director's job, and the pair are now looking to collaborate on a remake of the Thin Man movies of the 1930s.

"Its going to be a re-imagining of The Thin Man," says Marshall. "We're writing it now and Johnny is also co-producing. It will be set in the Thirties but we'll do our own version. I would never take The Thin Man out of that era of speakeasys, Martinis and murder. Johnny asked me half-way through working on Pirates because we have a very similar sensibility about making films. We both believe that not only do you work very hard and be creative, but also need a place where people are having a good and happy experiences because its your life, so it has to be a great experience."
