While there are some projects at 20th Century Fox that might not move forward post-merger, one that will be is Kenneth Branagh’s Death On The Nile, a sequel to Murder On The Orient Express.
On a luxurious cruise on the Nile River, a wealthy heiress, Linnet Ridgeway, is murdered. Fortunately, among the passengers are famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and his trusted companion, Colonel Race, who immediately begin their investigation. But just as Poirot identifies a motley collection of would-be murderers, several of the suspects also meet their demise, which only deepens the mystery of the killer’s identity.
The cast so far includes Gal Gadot as Linnet Ridgeway Doyle, Armie Hammer as Simon Doyle, Letitia Wright as Rosalie Otterbourne, and Kenneth Branagh is back as Hercule Poirot.
HN Entertainment has learned that they hope to get cameras rolling on September 30th as the main location will be Longcross Studios in Surrey, England, where Murder On The Orient Express was shot.
The production team for Death On The Nile includes production designer Jim Clay, supervising art director Dominic Masters, cinematographer Haris Zambarloukos, and costume designer Sammy Sheldon.
Armie Hammer will first shoot Ben Wheatley’s remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca that co-stars Lily James.
20th Century Fox recently gave the film a new release date of October 22nd, 2020.
