Since first hearing about Johnny’s Depp’s involvement in a feature version of the ’70s TV movie The Night Stalker, we’ve been excited. Even more so when news broke that Edgar Wright would be directing. Now we have a writer. Can the good news keep coming?
According to THR, D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity, Gross Pointe Blank) has been tapped to write Disney’s big-screen adaptation of The Night Stalker.
The project is based on the ABC television series “Kolchak: The Night Stalker”, created by Jeff Rice and starring Darren McGavin. The show ran for only one season (1974-75) although it proved a hit in syndication.
The series centered on Carl Kolchak, a reporter for the Chicago-based Independent News Service Stories, who investigated bizarre crimes committed by supernatural agents. Depp is producing with Christi Dembrowski.
Look for more on this one as soon as we can get it!
