Edgar Wright returning to Kolchak The Night Stalker with Johnny Depp?
From Digital Spy
Edgar Wright could be returning to his Kolchak: The Night Stalker project.
The filmmaker will pick up the Johnny Depp-starring film to replace Ant-Man, according to Deadline.
The 1970s television series starred Darren McGavin as Carl Kolchak, a tabloid reporter who is frequently drawn into supernatural adventures.
It is seen as a precursor to The X-Files, and experienced a revival in the 2000s as a series and comic book.
Depp will take on the title role.
Wright recently exited Marvel Studios' Ant-Man after developing the film since 2006. He is believed to have departed due a disagreement with the studio over script rewrites.
