A few years back, the first of the Agatha Christie Poirot remakes hit our screens. Murder on the Orient Express looked polished, modern, and had a cast of well-known actors hoping to breathe new life into these classic whodunits.
I still haven’t watched it but it is definitely on my streaming list when I get the chance. I’ve been reminded of it by the release of this new trailer for the next remake, Death on the Nile, which is about to make it’s way into theatres.
Death on the Nile boasts the same sort of acting line up as Murder, and I am definitely interested. Having Gal Gadot in a leading role makes it a must see, but at seeing Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders in the mix (a long time fav duo of mine), it has become a no brainer. Comedians usually thrive in dramatic roles, so I’m excited to see them shine.
Blurb from Rotten Tomatoes
Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot’s Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer turns into a terrifying search for a murderer when a picture-perfect couple’s idyllic honeymoon is tragically cut short.
Set against an epic landscape of sweeping desert vistas and the majestic Giza pyramids, this tale of unbridled passion and incapacitating jealousy features a cosmopolitan group of impeccably dressed travelers, and enough wicked twists and turns to leave audiences guessing until the final, shocking denouement.
