Johnny Depp to become The Thin Man for director Rob Marshall
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
My mother and father in-law got a little Bichon Frise puppy about a year ago and they named the little guy “Asta”. I was unfamiliar with the name until they enlightened me that in the 1934 movie THE THIN MAN, the title character’s dog was named “Asta”, hence the homage to classic films. And now, a new generation will have an excuse to name their dogs Asta as Johnny Depp looks set to star in the Warner Brothers remake of the popular film. Depp’s PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES director, Rob Marshall, appears to be on board to direct the film.
THE THIN MAN is actually about a married couple that solve crimes with a little tongue in cheek banter between the two love birds. With Johnny Depp attached to star, the lead actress in the film will quickly become a choice role for all A-list actresses out there. So now the real question is; who should star alongside Depp in THE THIN MAN?
