Several cast members were revealed for Kenneth Branagh’s next Agatha Christie adaptation, A Haunting in Venice. The film is based on Christie’s 1969 novel Hallowe’en Party. The cast includes Jamie Dornan, Michelle Yeoh, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Emma Laird, and Kelly Reilly. Branagh will direct and reprise his role as Hercule Poirot. The other actors’ roles are unknown at this time. Read Branagh’s statement here:
“This is a fantastic development of the character Hercule Poirot, as well as the Agatha Christie franchise. Based on a complex, little known tale of mystery set at Halloween in a pictorially ravishing city, it is an amazing opportunity for us, as filmmakers, and we are relishing the chance to deliver something truly spine-chilling for our loyal movie audiences.”
I’ve enjoyed Branagh’s other Poirot films, and I love Halloween-themed movies, so I’m interested. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments!
