D.V. DeVincentis to Draft The Night Stalker

Source: ComingSoon

May 19, 2012

D.V. DeVincentis has been brought aboard Walt Disney Pictures' big-screen version of The Night Stalker, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Produced in conjunction with his Infinitum Nihil, Johnny Depp is attached to headline with Edgar Wright directing.

The Night Stalker originally aired as a TV movie in 1972 and featured Darren McGavin as a Carl Kolchak, a reporter who, while tracking down a serial killer, finds that he's really going toe-to-toe with a vampire. A sequel, "The Night Strangler," aired in 1973 with a television series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" airing the following year. While the "Night Stalker" of the title referred to the Vampire, the term became associated with protagonist instead. Coincidentally, the same is true of another upcoming Depp project, Rob Marshall's take on The Thin Man.

DeVincentis is best known for writing High Fidelity and Gross Pointe Blank. His latest film, Lay the Favorite, reunites him with the former film's director, Stephen Frears.
