Edgar Wright directing NIGHTS STALKER revamp staring Johnny Depp

If you think we mean Johnny Depp will be playing Richard Ramirez the serial killer, than you would be dead wrong. Johnny Depp will be playing Carl Kolchak a reporter who gets wrapped up in a supernatural mystery. Read on for the details.


Deadline is reporting today that Edgar Wright of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World will direct this project for Disney and Depp’s Infinitum Nihil production company.

Right now, the site is saying that it is a “potential” starring vehicle for Depp, but seriously kiddies, why wouldn’t Depp take all of that wonderful Disney money? This project is most likely a lock for Depp.

Due to the fact it is a Disney film it will most likely be a PG-13 rating. The original Night Stalker was a PG affair so if it worked back then we are confident Edgar Wright will do the original justice.

Synopsis: “Investigative reporter, Carl Kolchak¬† travels to Las Vegas to discover a series of murders that lead up to one killer, a vampire!”
