Edgar Wright is in talks to direct Johnny Depp in Kolchak: The Night Stalker remake.

He may have departed the Ant-Man film just last week, but director Edgar Wright isn't wasting any time looking for a new job and is already in talks to talk take charge of Johnny Depp's new film.

Despite spending years developing the script for Ant-Man, Wright quit the movie last week declaring creative differences with the film's producers.

Sources tell Deadline.com Wright will commence work on the remake of the '70s movie and series spin-off imminently, with Depp set to play the titular detective.
