Johnny Depp has signed to play hard-drinking investigator Nick Charles in a remake of the classic 1930s film THE THIN MAN. Directing the film is Rob Marshall, who just directed the actor in the worldwide hit PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES. The female lead of Nora Charles, who gives as good as she gets, has not yet been cast. THE THIN MAN is a remake of the Oscar-nominated 1934 film starring William Powell and Myrna Loy as the married sophisticates who solve crimes from their Park Avenue penthouse.
