Twentieth Century Fox's "Death On The Nile" Begins Production With Director Kenneth Branagh
Production on Twentieth Century Fox’s “Death on the Nile,” a mystery-thriller based on the book by famed author Agatha Christie, has begun. The film will shoot at Longcross Studios outside London and on location in Egypt. “Death on the Nile” reunites the team of filmmakers behind the 2017 global hit “Murder on the Orient Express,” based on another celebrated Christie novel.
“Death on the Nile” will be released on October 9, 2020.
Five-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh returns as director and once again stars as famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. He is joined by an all-star cast of suspects which includes: Tom Bateman (who reprises the role of Bouc from “Murder on the Orient Express”), four-time Oscar® nominee Annette Bening (“Captain Marvel”), Russell Brand (“Ballers”), Ali Fazal (“Victoria & Abdul”), Dawn French (“French and Saunders”), Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”), Armie Hammer (“Call Me by Your Name”), Rose Leslie (“Game of Thrones”), Emma Mackey (“Sex Education”), Sophie Okonedo (“The Secret Life of Bees”), Jennifer Saunders (“Absolutely Fabulous”) and Letitia Wright (“Black Panther”).
In “Death on the Nile,” Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian adventure aboard a glamorous river steamer descends into a terrifying search for a murderer when an idyllic honeymoon is shattered by violent deaths. This sinister tale of obsessive love and its murderous consequences plays out in an epic landscape of danger and foreboding, with enough shocking twists and turns to leave audiences unsettled and guessing until the final, shocking denouement.
