It's early in the process, but Disney is hoping that Depp will star in both, and he and Christi Dembrowski will produce.
"The Night Stalker" is based on the 1972 ABC-TV movie that turned into the series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." It was about a newspaper reporter in Chicago who investigated mysterious deaths — and frequently found a supernatural connection to them.
The Revere movie is based on the colonial American and his famous midnight ride — recently brought to light again after former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin misstated the facts of what Revere did.
Lee and Janet Batchler ("Batman Forever") will write that movie. No writer has been attached to "Night Stalker."
Deadline first reported the news.
