    Seberg screenwriters and husband-and-wife writing partners Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel have been set by 20th Century Studios to adapt the Agatha Christie classic And Then There Were None.

    Disney will keep the film in its pre-World War II period in which Christie wrote the novel, but with a fresh take. Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps is producing alongside the Christie Estate.

    Christie’s novel tells the story of 10 seemingly disparate individuals invited to an isolated island, with the house guests murdered one by one during the course of their stay. The book has sold more than 100 million copies in eight languages.

    It is to be its own continuity separate form 20th’s current Christie adaptations of Poirot with Kenneth Branagh.

    Feel like the previous two titles of this are enough to make me boycott it.

    BBC did a TV miniseries of this in 2015 that was INCREDIBLE – would 10/10 recommend to any Christie fans.

    This is obviously one of her most famous novels, and while I don’t think Christie’s books ever got especially deep or emotional, but this is certainly the book that has the best frame work to pull that from (which the 2015 miniseries does excellently) so I am very interested to see this. The miniseries was also the first english language adaptation to use the original, much darker ending from the book rather than the slightly happier one from the play, so now that that barrier’s been broken (and darker content is more welcome in mainstream entertainment) I’m sure this will do the same. They also used what now seems to be the common substitution in the script of “10 little soldier boys”, which rolls off the tongue a little awkwardly but of course is much more appropriate haha

    For anyone wondering, the only other adaptation and at the time the only one to use the original ending was a 2008 Russian version (because of course it was) that I have been trying and failing for years to find online!
