Uh-Oh

Hollywood Reporter: "Author and screenwriter Jerry Stahl has been tapped to pen the script for The Thin Man, Warner Bros.’ remake of the classic private eye movie which has Johnny Depp attached to star and Rob Marshall in negotiations to direct.

The original movie was based on a Dashiell Hammett novel, which centered on former private detective-turned-professional drunkard Nick Charles, his lovely socialite wife Nora and their schnauzer Asta."

Let me guess: um, Paris Hilton as Nora? No, unlikely. Katherine Heigl? No, she's doing Stephanie Plum. Jennifer Aniston? Too old.
Reese Witherspoon?

I give up.

I'm hoping for Snooki.

Was Asta a schnauzer in the book? He was certainly a fox terrier ("Skippy" essayed the role)in the films.

It's been 40 years since I read the book. I remember the fox terrier, too.

If we're lucky, Johnny will play the title character.
