Forbes: Kolchak, the Night Stalker, the short-lived 1974-5 television show that has been credited as the inspiration for The X-Files, is about to get a third life (the one after its even shorter-lived second life as a 2005 TV series). Johnny Depp’s production company, Infinitum Nihil, will be bringing the adventures of reporter Carl Kolchak to the big screen.

Hat tip to Doc Quatermass.

Without McGavin, this will likely suffer the same fate. The late actor created one of those indelible characters that are not easily dismissed.

Oh, I don't know. Maybe if they get Nicolas Cage...or not.

Or Johnny Depp.

My kids are really enjoying the Kolshak episodes on Netflix. My husband and I are finally convincing them that there was more to the 1970s than disco and Watergate.
