I’ll admit that i’d be more than willing to watch a Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby because i find Luhrmann’s lurid, over-the-top style to be fascinating.

But Johnny Depp as Nick Charles in “The Thin Man”???  No.  No. Please for the love of god NO. I adore Nick and Nora Charles just as they are and would be about as interested in a remake of “The Thin Man” as i would be in a remake of “Casablanca” or “Amelie” or “Kamikaze Girls.”
