New Screenwriter for Johnny Depp's The Thin Man

The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett

It's been a few months since we've had any news on Johnny Depp's adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's 1934 novel The Thin Man.

The last we heard Jerry Stahl was writing the screenplay with Rob Marshall directing. Now we're learning that David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Panic Room, Secret Window with Depp, Angels & Demons) is on board to write the script for Marshall to direct.

We also thought Depp wanted to make the film contemporary a la BBC's new Sherlock adaptations, but Deadline|Hollywood is now reporting that it will be a period piece.

Regardless, this film seems to be years away from reality so we're expecting more changes as the months go by and will keep you posted.
