Fox has scheduled Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile movie adaptation for a theatrical release starting November 8, 2019.

Death on the Nile is based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name and will arrive almost exactly two years after Branagh’s previous Christie adaptation, Murder on the Orient Express. Branagh will reprise his Murder role as world famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot in Death on the Nile, which follows the master sleuth on a seemingly harmless trip aboard a steamer traveling down the Nile River when (you guessed it) one of the guests onboard turns up dead under mysterious circumstances.

Murder on the Orient Express screenwriter Michael Green is also handling the script for Death on the Nile, with Branagh juggling directing and headlining responsibilities yet again. – Feb 13 2018 [x] [x]
