While I love the original, classic Thin Man movies starring William Powell and Myrna Loy, the idea of a new take on the characters doesn't chill my blood. There's very little Depp can't do in my book. If anyone can do it, it would be Captain Jack Sparrow.
My main concern is who would play Nora. Myrna Loy was an original. She radiated beauty, intelligence and common sense. It's hard to know who among today's young look-alike actresses could fill that bill. Any ideas? My first thought is Rachel Weisz.
