Edgar Wright To Direct ‘The Night Stalker’


Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim) is set to direct The Night Stalker. Johnny Depp is attached to star in the film, which will be the film version of the ’70s horror TV series.

It has also been reported that “the subject matter will be tailored to fit Disney’s family film mandate and likely a PG-13 rating.” Wright and Depp’s Infinitum Nihil production company “will oversee and shape the project … from the ground floor.”

Depp is expected to star as tabloid reporter Carl Kolchak who investigates mysterious crimes with unlikely and often paranormal causes, particularly ones law enforcement authorities won’t pursue. The role was first made famous by the late Darren McGavin.
