Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig and Amy Adams Racing to Star Opposite Johnny Depp in 'Thin Man'
In addition to the three actresses, Eva Green, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Emily Blunt and Isla Fisher are also interested to play Nora Charles in the high-profile remake movie project.


A number of A-list actresses are racing to win the coveted part of Nora Charles in "The Thin Man" remake. Among those who were reportedly competing to star as Johnny Depp's leading lady in the high-end movie project are "Easy A" beauty Emma Stone, "Bridesmaids" actress Kristen Wiig, and "The Muppets" star Amy Adams.

Aside from the there ladies, Deadline reported that some other notable actresses are also in the mix. They include Eva Green, Carey Mulligan, Rachel Weisz, Emily Blunt as well as Isla Fisher. It was said that director Rob Marshall will begin meetings as soon as next week to decide who will score the desirable female lead role.

In "The Thin Man", Nora is the charming wife of socialite-turned-sleuth Nick Charles. The couple are drawn into investigating a murder. The movie is based on a mystery novel by Dashiell Hammett. The book was first adapted into the big screen in 1934 with William Powell and Myrna Loy playing Nick and Nora respectively.

The upcoming remake has Billy Ray serving as the screenwriter. As for Marshall, aside from directing it, he will produce the film along with Depp, John DeLuca, Kevin McCormick and Christi Dembrowski. The crime drama, which will reunite Depp and Marshall after their collaboration in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", still has not set a start date.
