The second chapter of Agatha Christie's mystery series has a new member in the club. Her name is Ms. Letitia Wright, who was in Black Mirror, Guava Island and of course her breakout film Black Panther. She will also make an appearance in the upcoming film Avengers: Endgame and previously was in Avengers: Infinity War. She will play a lead suspect in death on the Nile.
The novel was published in 1937 and was about detective Poirot who was on his vacation in Egypt, but soon a heiress was murdered and he jumped on the case to solve who did it. Mr. Kenneth Branagh will play detective Poirot and direct the project. Mr. Tom Batemen will appear once again as Bouc. The club of suspects already cast in the film are Ms. Gal Gadot, Mr. Armie Hammer, and Ms. Jodie Comer. The movie is scheduled to be release on October 2, 2020. That gives you plenty of time to read the novel or check out the 1978 film adaptation that starred Dame Maggie Smith, Ms. Angela Lansbury, Ms. Bette Davis, and Mr. David Niven.
