Seems like a fitting project for him. Just hope he does 'The World's End' first!

I think he's completely wrong for Karl Kolchak, a grizzled tabloid reporter. He's too much of a pretty boy. I loved the Night Stalker but I'm not holding high hopes for this. I certainly hope we don't get some sort of Burtonesque highly-stylised gothic PG piece...

"Wrong wrong wrong" How about we shake the gothic-Burton feeling for a moment shall we? We know Wright puts his own spin on pretty much everything he does- there's no way Depp will do gothic if Wright doesn't want it... These people aren't just rolling down a hill. There's control and foresight. Be logical, you plum.

Totally agree with this, although I don't necessarily agree that Edgar Wright will do a Tim Burton...

I hope Depp doesn't turn this into a jokefest like Pirates Of The Caribbean. Hiring Shaun Of The Dead director Edgar Wright seems to indicate it will be jokey. What made all the Kolchak stories work was that they treated the supernatural as if it were real and that made it scary.

I think it's time for him to give up on Ant Man now as god knows when he'd get round to doing it. It's been well over 5 years now already.

I read another report on this which said Johnny Depp's Night Stalker will be "toned down for a DIsney audience." Oh dear, sounds like we'll be getting Ghostbusters for kiddies folks.

Disney give it the right treatment. Night Stalker isn't a blood splattering gore fest but it isn't Ghostbusters either.

Don't know anything about the Night Stalker. For all I know I could love it, but right now, I just see it as a distraction from either At World's End or Ant Man!
