Wright & Depp Team For Kolchak Film Redux

February 23, 2012

Edgar Wright will direct a feature film version of a cult 1970’s TV series titled “The Night Stalker” says Deadline.

The original series followed Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin), a reporter who investigates mysterious crimes that have a supernatural or sci-fi element.

The show was rebooted a few years ago with Stuart Townsend as Kolchak but was cancelled after a few episodes. The original was a major influence on producer Chris Carter and inspired him to create “The X-Files“.

Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski will produce the pic with the notion of a Depp playing Kolchak.

No writer is involved at this point, but with Wright in the mix it’s expected he, Depp and Dembrowski will rework the project from the ground up.
