Production on Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express sequel, Death on the Nile, has started and will bring together a STACKED cast of suspects.
Detective Poirot returns to the big screen for Death on the Nile next, but today, Kenneth Branagh has begun filming the sequel/remake to his previous adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express. To mark the official start of production, a cast list has been revealed and it’s just as impressive as the previous film:
It’s a really great looking cast, and pretty much everyone behind the cameras are returning as well. Branagh is back on directing duties (on top of starring as the iconic detective), with Michael Green once again handling the script. Considering how much I really enjoyed Murder on the Orient Express, I’m excited to see if they can pull of this Agatha Christie mystery as well.
Death on the Nile is slated to hit theaters on October 9, 2020.
