Witty and eccentric Hercule Poirot is one of the most famous detectives in literature. The star-studded cast of director Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile includes Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Letitia Wright. Ali Fazal is officially part of the cast as well. Agatha Cristie would most likely love this assemble for the latest adaptation of her famous book. Branagh will star again as Poirot.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman co-star, Ali Fazal confirmed the news. He said in a statement that he has always been a huge Agatha Christie fan: “Yes, I am part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to being a part of it. My mother and I have always been huge fans of Agatha Christie novels.”
Death On The Nile is not a sequel but a follow-up to 2017 blockbuster Murder On The Orient Express. If you read the books or saw this or any other versions, you know how Agatha Cristie and Poirot work. This time Hercule Poirot is on vacation in Egypt, there’s a love triangle and a murder.
Kenneth Branagh’s Poirot, Belgium detective of outstanding skills and mustaches, is fantastic, for one simple reason. of course, the main reason would be Branagh’s acting skills, but the second one is even more interesting. He did not try to mimic the most famous Poirot, played by David Suchet. He gave this popular character a new life and that’s what makes us excited for the upcoming movie.
Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile and new Hercule Poirot will be out next year, in October. And then, a year after that, Sherlock Holmes will be back, with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. You cannot escape a good mystery, whether you are a book or TV or cinema fan.
