As read in Vulture, Johnny Depp will star in an upcoming remake of Dashiell Hammett’s book The Thin Man and is hoping to have Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) direct.  You may remember the film series made famous by William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles and their bright but cowardly dog Asta. The martinis flowed in between the detecting in the original 1934 film. Seems an easy role change for Depp, who is fresh off his latest Pirates Of The Caribbean sequel. Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow character was no stranger to rum-soaked adventures. But who will play the wealthy, martini-swilling Nora?
Next, but not least, the trailer for Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 has been released. See it below. Looks like Meyers herself has a cameo in the film. Find her in the wedding scene, if you can.
