Baby boomers may remember watching a vampire-centric special titled The Night Stalker on the small screen back in the early 70’s. The made-for-TV movie was so popular that the Walt Disney Studios and Johnny Depp have decided to team up and bring the thriller to a new audience on the big screen. Set in seedy Las Vegas, an investigative reporter, Kolchak, is hot on the trail of a serial killer whom is suspects is in fact a vampire. (Don’t we all need a lil more vampires in our lives?)
No word yet on whether Depp will star in the film but it’s certain that his company Infinitum Nihil, which is co-owned by his sis Christie Dembrowski, will be producing it. Wonder where filming for the rumored 5th Pirates will fit in to all of this?
