In more casting news, director, Rob Marshall will start the process of finding the actress who will play Nora in the Billy Ray adaptation of The Thin Man, opposite Johnny Depp. Deadline reported thatthere is a long list of actresses who are all vying for the role of the Nick Charles’ wife. The list of actresses who are reportedly auditioning for the role include Eva Green, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Kristen Wiig, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher. Phew, now that is one long list of candidates! Who do you think should get the role?
The Thin Man is a remake of the 1934 film. It is being penned by the now iconic, Billy Ray, who wrote the screenplay for The Hunger Games. This is sure to be one helluva film, and I can see why all these actresses want to be on it it. Johnny Depp has been perfectly cast as the socialite detective, Nick Charles. It is basically a slightly eccentric murder mystery and I think Johnny will bring the right amount of charisma and broodiness to the role. I honestly don’t know who should be cast as his wife, Nora. At first I thought Emma Stone could be good, but now I’m not sure. I guess it depends what type of Nora they are after. With Billy Ray behind the steering wheel this is already looking like a good one to watch out for though.
