This movie will be based on author Agatha Christie’s novel ‘Death on The Nile’ and is a follow-up of 2017 blockbuster ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. This movie will chronicle Hercules Poirot’s vacation in Egypt where he discovers a murder on the banks of river Nile as a love triangle goes awry.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, ‘Death on the Nile’ was made previously in 1978, starring Peter Ustinov, Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, Mia Farrow and others. The new ‘Death on The Nile’ will go on floor later this month in London and parts of Europe. Along with Ali and Gal, Armie Hammer and Letitia Wright have also boarded the cast.
