Depp and Disney to Desecrate Kolchak
Deadline is reporting that Disney will be producing a remake of Kolchak the Night Stalker starring none other than Johnny Depp. Just what we need: a sexy, family friendly Kolchak. Edgar Wright will direct.
Although the chances of corporate behemoth Disney producing a worthwhile Kolchak are pretty slim, they have hired on a director that’s been involved with some good work. Edgar Wright has directed the very funny Shaun of the Dead and executive produced the fantastic Attack the Block. And, it turns out that Depp is a big fan of the original series and was one of the drivers behind the project. He can act as well. So maybe between Depp and Wright it will work. Or maybe it will be a overblown, productized, debauched, obnoxiously computer animated, soulless mess. We’ll see”¦
