Murder on the Orient Express to get a 'sequel'

'Murder on the Orient Express' Sequel in the Works (Exclusive)

Fox is staying in the Agatha Christie business.

Twentieth Century Fox's sequel is thus an adaptation of Death on the Nile, a novel that sees Poirot solve a mystery aboard a riverboat.

Death on the Nile follows the story of Poirot, a fictional Belgian detective who appears in several of Christie's works, including Murder on the Orient Express.

Murder on the Orient Express has spent over 80 years as a literary classic and over 40 years as a cherished movie adaptation, but earlier this month, Kenneth Branagh's remake of the Agatha Christie mystery laid new claim to the small screen. She was young, stylish and handsome. The novel was first adapted in the 1970s by John Guillermin.

The book was adapted into a 1978 movie with Peter Ustinov as Poirot along with Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, George Kennedy, Jane Birkin, Jack Warden, and David Niven. However, it seems that at least in 2017, despite stunning visuals and the draw of a stellar cast, Branagh's Orient Express falls incredibly short of the masterful whodunits Christie is known for.

The script will be written by Michael green, who worked on the films "Murder on the Orient Express", "Logan" and others.

Also starring Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley, "Orient Express" released recently. There are positive reviews of Orient Express, which mostly center around its nostalgic quality and entertainment value. According to Variety, although Kenneth Branagh hasn't signed a deal yet to both direct and reprise Hercule Poirot for this sequel, that's expected to be rectified soon.
