The Playlist recently revealed that Depp and Pfeiffer may be headlining Kenneth Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express, which originated as a novel in 1934 by Agatha Christie, before becoming a 1974, Oscar-winning film.
Express, which is scheduled to hit theaters in a little over a year, has had a difficult time locking down a cast. Angelina Jolie was first set to star, but dropped out last summer. And while Charlize Theron was believed to take her place, an official contract never materialized.
Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer, who previously starred together in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, aren't exactly attached to the project, but just rumored to be in consideration. However, the clock is ticking. Murder on the Orient Express will make its debut on November 22, 2017.
Depp has been featured in the news the past few months, for both personal and professional reasons. Not only did the Pirates of the Caribbean star go through a messy divorce, but he's also been tapped to headline Labyrinth, an autobiographical drama that may have the potential for the actor to bring home Oscar gold. He last appeared in summer's Alice Through the Looking Glass and Yoga Hosers, two box office disappointments.

On the other hand, Dangerous Minds actress Michelle Pfeiffer hasn't made much of a splash in the entertainment industry lately. The actress was last seen in 2013's The Family, which failed with critics, but managed to become a minor hit.
Would you be more inclined to see a remake of Murder on the Orient Express if it starred Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfieffer?
