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.

Were Robin Williams & Johnny Depp Going to Save the World?

Sep 9 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Here at my house, we are still not at a place where we can talk about the passing of Robin Williams with any sort of coherence. It usually just results in one or more of us descending into weepy tears of loss and heartbreak.Like this, but way less attractive.However, there is almost nothing more sad at this point than hearing about all of the amazing projects that could have been, had we not lost Williams too soon. But, such ...

Stan Lee Reunites With ‘Mallrats’ Director Kevin Smith in ‘Yoga Hosers’

Aug 28 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for Smith in film number two, Mallrats, when Lee showed up – as himself – to spout a few gross words of wisdom to our hero, Brodie. Now, almost 10 years later ...

We know Meryl Streep plays a witch in Into the Woods, but with a new photo from Disney form their upcoming big screen version of the Broadway musical, she looks a little more whacked than witchy! 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 abo ...
