Johnny Depp-Edgar Wright collaboration The Night Stalker discovers its writer

Main screen for The Night Stalker

THE NIGHT STALKER is Johnny Depp's next go at adapting an old television series (it ran from '74-'75), a project on which he'll hopefully be joined by director Edgar Wright after he finishes shooting THE WORLD'S END. Falling right in Depp's wheelhouse, "the series centered on Carl Kolchak, a reporter for the Chicago-based Independent News Service Stories, who investigated bizarre crimes committed by supernatural agents."

I think there's a good chance that working with Wright will help Depp to bring us something truly special once again, and the involvement of scribe D.V. DeVincentis (HIGH FIDELITY, GROSSE POINTE BLANK) can only help in that regard as he's a writer who knows well how to juggle action, character, and comedy. 

You know who can stalk me at night anytime? Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who worked with Wright on SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD.

I Wonder How...

... Chris Carter is handling this news? This series was, according to him, the inspiration for The X-Files and one would guess that he'd be the one to get this project off the ground. But, I guess he's too busy with whatever else. In any case, I will be there with bells on.

Interesting. Especially considering Rob Bowman (who directed over 30 and produced over 80 X-Files espisodes) obviously has close ties to Carter AND was involved in the 2005 Night Stalker series as well.

Simon Pegg & Nick Frost. In any role, I don't care.

Depp is the man and all, but I can't stop wishing someone else was starring. I keep picturing Bryan Cranston.

The 70s Night Stalker TV show was fun when I was a kid...and nostalgic fun now. But I REALLY dug the 2005 series that lasted a scant 10 episodes. Depp could be great in this role. Here's to hoping Tim Burton is not involved though.

Of the million and a half

projects on Depp's plate, this the one that I anticipate the most. I hope he nails it.

Bet you 10 euros that Tim Burton is stalking Edgar Wright as we speak.

Looking out for the slightest hint of a cold or disagreement so he can swoop in and take over from him.
