No "Thin Man" remake?
It's been reported that after the disappointing returns on "Dark Shadows," Warner Bros. will not be remaking "The Thin Man" with Johnny Depp.
I'm of mixed emotions. One on hand, it's a classic! Hollywood shouldn't remake classics! On the other hand, the film is 80 years old! Perhaps the statute of limitations has run out and it's time to see what modern Hollywood can bring to the classic. (Color for starters, then Johnny Depp).
We haven't heard the end of this though. It's too good a property to leave alone, and, let's face it, it's the only film Hollywood hasn't remade yet.
But who....George Clooney and Rachel Weisz?
