Kenneth Branagh to Return as Hercule Poirot in a Third Agatha Christie Film

It’s been confirmed that a third Agatha Christie film is being developed by Kenneth Branagh, in which the actor and director will return as famed detective Hercule Poirot.

After the delayed release of Death on the Nile, many were wondering if this was the last we would see of Kenneth Branagh as Poirot. A report from The Hollywood Reporter confirms that we haven’t seen the last of the mustachioed detective, as a third Agatha Christie film is in the works, and indeed according to the report the script is already complete.

It’s yet to be confirmed which Agatha Christie novel is being adapted for this film, but it’s been hinted that this is one of Christie’s lesser-known novels and it will be set in post-war Venice. Given that Death on the Nile was set in 1937, I can only assume this third film would be post World War II (1945 or later).

If a script is already completed for a third Poirot film, we might hear more story details sooner rather than later. The idea of seeing Branagh’s Poirot wandering through Venice on a case is admittedly tantalizing.

Hopefully more details on this film will soon be forthcoming.
