According to Hollywood North Report, Johnny Depp has been cast in the still-impending re-re-adaptation of Richard Matheson’s wonderful book I Am Legend. Previous reports had Wil Smith’s name attached to the project in the role previously played by Vincent Price (The Last Man on Earth) and Charlton “They’re Made of People! Heston (The Omega Man).
I’m guessing this news means that we’re closer to seeing the finished product. As always, it will be interesting to see how well they adhere to the story and the ways in which they differ. Maybe the vampiric cry of “Come Out, Neville!” gets an update?
