Johnny Depp is collaborating with Rob Marshall to develop a remake of the private eye classic "The Thin Man" for Warner Bros. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Depp and Marshall are going to try using the "Sherlock Holmes" vibe meaning, this version will retain its period setting but will have a contemporary feel.
Based on the classic Dashiell Hammett novel, "The Thin Man" revolves around former private eye-turned-drunk Nick Charles and his socialite wife Nora. Oh, let's not forget their cute doggie Asta. The 1934 film starred William Powell and Myrna Loy which proved to be very popular that it spawned five sequels and a TV show in the 1950s.
