Depp Wants To Double Up With Marshall For The Thin Man

Actor JOHNNY DEPP is campaigning for director ROB MARSHALL to take charge of a planned movie remake of detective film THE THIN MAN.
Depp is currently working on the fourth instalment of The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with Marshall and he's keen to continue his working relationship with the filmmaker.
He is reportedly lobbying for Marshall to sign on for the upcoming Warner Brothers project, for which he'll take the lead role, reports New York Magazine's Vulture blog.
The Thin Man, based on the 1934 book by Dashiell Hammett, previously hit the big screen as a six-film franchise starring William Powell as Nick Charles, a detective who gives up his career and becomes an alcoholic househusband.
It also hit small screens in the U.S. as a TV series between 1957 and 1959.
