Jack Thorne to pen script for Johnny Depp's Mortimer Wintergreen

Jan 15 2013, 12:14am CST | by

Jack Thorne will write the script for Johnny Depp's 'Mortimer Wintergreen'.

The 'Skins' and 'This is England '86' scribe will pen the script for the Warner Bros. magical adventure film, which is being produced by Johnny's Infinitum Nihil production company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project - which is set to be directed by 'Nanny McPhee Returns' helmer Susanna White - is an adaptation of the 1987 Myron Levoy novel, 'The Magic Hat of Mortimer Wintergreen', about two young siblings who run away from their cruel aunt and go on adventures with the titular magician and his magic hat.

The 'Dark Shadows' actor may star in the film depending on his availability and script approval, it is reported.

Warner Bros. was said to have been developing a version of the film in which the title character is a conman who stumbles upon the hat and attempts to keep it out of the hands of a band of villains who want to exploit its magic.

Jack's previous credits include British TV series 'Skins', 'This is England '86', its sequel, 'This is England '86', and 'The Fades'.

The writer also penned the script for Nick Hornby adaptation, 'A Long Way Down', starring Rosamund Pike, Aaron Paul, Pierce Brosnan and Toni Collette, which is due for release this year.

We were pretty darn impressed with that photo of Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and the Into the Woods teaser trailer is truly compelling (even without any musical numbers), but there is something about the below photo of Streep as the evil ...

And after his bad experiences with Bruce Willis on Cop Out, we didn’t expect him to be collaborating with someone at Johnny Depp’s level any time soon. But the Pirates Of The Caribbean star is front and ...

Aug 11 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

If anyone knows how movies can damage people, it’s Terry Gilliam. The director has battled over many a film in his time. He fought Universal brass over Brazil, and Columbia over The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Most catastrophically, he battled weather, disaster, and illness during the original shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Gilliam lost that fight, but he has been trying to make new versions of the film for several years ...
