Death on the Nile 2020 Movie

Death on the Nile 2020 Movie is an upcoming American crime thriller film directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a screenplay by Michael Green, based on the 1937 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie. The film is a sequel to 2017's Murder on the Orient Express and stars Branagh returning as Hercule Poirot, as well as Gal Gadot, Letitia Wright, Armie Hammer, Annette Bening, Rose Leslie, Ali Fazal, Sophie Okonedo, Tom Bateman, Emma Mackey, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, and Russell Brand. The film is the third screen adaptation of Christie's novel, following the 1978 film, and a 2004 episode of the television series Agatha Christie's Poirot. The plot follows Poirot, a world-renowned detective, on a vacation in Egypt and becoming involved in a love triangle gone murderously bad. Principal photography began in late September 2019 in England, with filming taking place at Longcross Studios in Surrey and on location in Egypt, and is set to last until Christmas of the same year. Death on the Nile is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on October 9, 2020 by 20th Century Fox.

In 2015, Christie's great-grandson James Prichard, Chairman of Agatha Christie Ltd., expressed enthusiasm for sequels, citing the positive collaboration with Branagh and the production team. In May 2017, Branagh expressed interest in further installments if the first film were successful. On November 20, 2017, it was announced that 20th Century Fox was developing Death on the Nile as a sequel to their version of Murder on the Orient Express with Michael Green returning to pen the script and Kenneth Branagh set to return onscreen as Poirot, and behind the screen as director.

In September 2018, Gal Gadot joined the cast. In addition, Paco Delgado was hired to design the costumes. In October 2018, Armie Hammer joined the cast, and Tom Bateman was confirmed to reprise his role as Bouc for the film. In January 2019, Branagh revealed that Jodie Comer had joined the cast. In April 2019, Letitia Wright joined the cast. Annette Bening was in talks to join in June. Russell Brand joined the cast in August 2019. Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo and Jennifer Saunders were added in September, with Comer no longer involved.
