Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Story by Jack Foley

JOHNNY Depp is to reunite with his Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall for a remake of the comedy-crime movie The Thin Man.

Depp will play the part of Nick Charles, a former detective who solves a murder mystery with the help of his wealthy wife, Nora.

As yet, the role of Nora has still to be cast.

William Powell played Nick in the 1934 original, while Myrna Loy played Nora.

The Thin Man is currently set for a 2013 release – the same year as a proposed Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

Marshall told Variety he was “overjoyed” at the idea of working with Depp again, “especially on such a classy and classic project”.
