Johnny Depp doing Harry Houdini in Lionsgate’s Summit biopic based on William Kalush and Larry Sloman’s book The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America’s First Superhero? It’s being blasted elsewhere as a big scoop, but some followup reporting convinces us that it’s not much further along when Deadline reported on it earlier this year. It’s one of several Houdini projects in development including Sony’s Houdini. Red 2‘s Dean Parisot is set to direct the Lionsgate film from a script by Noah Oppenheim.
