Kenneth Branagh Continues Agatha Christie Series With 'A Haunting in Venice'

Must read

Kenneth Branagh is tackling another Hercule Poirot Agatha Christie novel, as the filmmaker will direct and star in A Haunting in Venice, a film inspired by Christie's 1969 novel titled Hallowe’en Party.

Branagh is reprising his role as the detective Hercule Poirot, who he previously played in 2017's Murder on the Orient Express and this year's Death on the Nile. Logan writer Michael Green is handling the screenplay, and the movie is set to begin production next month ahead of its 2023 release.

Alongside Branagh's Poirot, the movie will star Tina Fey, Michelle Yeoh, Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jamie Dornan, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly, and Riccardo Scamarico.

You can read the official description for the movie below:

"Set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve, 'A Haunting in Venice' is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets."

We were big fans of Murder on the Orient Express, calling the movie amazing when it released in 2017. Death on the Nile didn't quite reach the same highs, as we said "It takes Death on the Nile far longer than it should to reach its most impactful moments" in our review.
