Edgar Wright may return to “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” with Johnny Depp

PanARMENIAN.Net - 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, Digital Spy said citing 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.
