Well, we’re getting another 20th Century-produced Agatha Christie adaptation—but, shockingly, this one won’t be building on the Murder on the Orient Express/Death on the Nile Christie Cinematic Universe they started.
Deadline reports that the studio has set Seberg writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel to now adapt Christie’s And Then There Were None as a feature film. It’s the author’s bestselling work (the biggest crime novel ever, actually), and it’s already been adapted for both the big and small screen over a dozen times before. It’s just that kind of timeless story of ten people invited to an island and methodically murdered that is endlessly relatable.
It’s said the film will retain the original’s pre-WWII setting, but we’re gonna guess that it’s probably not going to keep the original title and accompanying rhyme. Turns out, maybe some elements aren’t all that timeless.
