Johnny Depp, who’s currently in theaters starring in Tim Burton’s adaptation of “Dark Shadows,” is intent on bringing another vintage ABC show to the big screen.

The update of the Darren McGavin series “Kolchak: The Night Stalker,” which attracted a cult following during its 1974-75 run on ABC, has recruited D.V. DeVincentis ("High Fidelity") to pen the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Edgar Wright, best known for "Shaun of the Dead," is set to direct.

The original series starred McGavin as intrepid reporter Carl Kolchak of the Independent News Service, who tracks down bizarre crimes and supernatural occurrences.
