Hot Role For Actresses? ‘Thin Man’ Remake Has ‘Em All Lined Up To Play Nora Charles

By MIKE FLEMING 

Thursday March 29, 2012 @ 3:22pm EDT



EXCLUSIVE: Rob Marshall next week begins meetings to find who’ll play Nora in the Warner Bros remake of The Thin Man. Here are the named I’m hearing who are interested in cavorting with Johnny Depp, who’ll play the tipsy socialite-turned-sleuth Nick Charles: Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher. This one should be fun!

woohoocheer.gif crossfingers.gif I've always thought Amy Adams would make a great Nora Charles!!! She's smart, can deliver witty banter and has the body shape to wear the 1930s clothes!

Who do you all like?

Well, I still am wishing that the quirky little actress who would play Simone Beavoir inwould be chosen, but I'm sure Hollywood would hold out for an American actress. Oh well. I can wish.

I'm getting the feeling it might be a lesser known or totally unknown.

Glad to hear it's moving on though.

Thanks for the update.

I'm hoping for an American actress and I'm betting on a fairly well known actress for Nora.They need someone who is cross promotional, and there was a difference of many years between Myrna Loy and William Powell. Just like it was smart for DIsney to use Armie Hammer for the Lone Ranger, he's popular in his own right, and brings in a whole different demographic to the film. wink.gif

Eva's my choice, too. She seems to have done a good job with an American accent in Dark Shadows. I think Isla has a lot more acting chops than she gets credit for. Sometimes, actors never get a chance to show more than one type of character. I still can't believe what a great job she did with her voice in Rango. The rest of the actresses are too young, not right, or I just don't like them. tongue.gif

Jessica Chastain - can't see her as Nora, but she was my favorite actress in The Help. She presented a character that was a believable human being - funny, miserable, serious, mischievous, smart.

Just FYI.... when the original actors were cast...

William Powell who plays Nick Charles was 42.

Myrna Loy who plays Nora Charles was 29.

SO there was a 13 year difference in their ages... just a thought.

OK I just did the math...

Depp's 49 this year so....


Emma Stone - 24

Carey Mulligan - 27

Emily Blunt - 29

Eva Green - 32

Isla Fisher - 36

Amy Adams - 38

Rachel Weisz - 42

Kristin Wiig - 45

So I don't know about you, but I think anyone young enough to be his real life daughter is just creepy. So, age wise, that rules out anyone 29 or younger in my personal "ewww" factor.

I guess when I wrote 'too young," I was thinking maturity. Having a hard time explaining it, but I find a lot of young actresses these days, just like kids in general, don't have very mature speaking patterns. Sort of a lazy way of speaking, poor vocabularly and pronunciation, slang. Think: Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone (I lke her, though). Even though Drew Barrymore isn't so young anymore, I find her lisping speech annoying and the same in every movie she's in - it takes me out of the movie. I like all of Music & Lyrics except her scenes.

There are young actresses who could be Nora. Just not the ones listed here, IMO. Plus, I don't want to read all the comments about the age gap being "creepy," or "pedophilic." No younger than 30, please.

I'm not sure the age difference will be a consideration in the film version. It was customary in that time to pair much older actors with younger actresses...I just don't know if that would be what they will go for in the film....just my opinion...

Personally, I don't like to see people paired with spouses young enough to be their child.

But I think that in the book, the ages were a bit off too. I think Nora was about 25 or 26 and that Nick was maybe 40 -41? And they married when she was really young, like 19.

But we are learning that no matter what the source material is, it can be changed to suit the studio/writer/director/producers/star.
