“I don't like a dame who gets noisy after a few sniffles.”
Yesterday it became official that Rob Marshall will be directing Johnny Depp in the role of Nick Charles in The Thin Man, originally played by William Powell back in 1934.
It'll be interesting to see how they approach the vast amounts of alcohol consumed during the course of the Charles' investigations. Just take a look at this compilation of clips from several of the Thin Man films. Can Depp pull off that quick-witted Powell charm? What modern screen couples approach the level of chemistry these two had? And who would you suggest play Nora Charles, delightfully originated by Myrna Loy in the first series?
