EXCLUSIVE: Gal Gadot has been set to star in Death On the Nile, the latest Agatha Christie adaptation set up at 20th Century Fox with Kenneth Branagh directing. The project came together last year as the studio was finding success with its Christie ensemble Murder on the Orient Express. The pic ended up grossing $352.8 million worldwide with Branagh at the helm and also playing master detective Hercule Poirot.
OMG I AM SOOO EXCITED

Gadot, who is currently shooting a little film called Wonder Woman 1984, will play Linnet Ridgeway Doyle, a rich heiress who falls in love with Simon. She’s the first castmember set; Branagh has not been officially set to reprise as the Belgian detective.
The 1974 movie version of Death on the Nile starred Peter Ustinov as Poirot along with the usual stacked ensemble that included Bette Davis, Angela Lansbury, Maggie Smith, Mia Farrow and David Niven. It was directed by John Guillermin.

One would think that at least one of the surviving members of the original cast could be cast be it Maggie Smith, Mia Farrow, Angela Lansbury, Olivia Hussey, Lois Chiles or Jane Birkin.
Then again no surviving members of Murder on the Orient Express were cast such as Michael York, Albert Finney (retired/ill health?), Jacqueline Bissett, Vanessa Redgrave or Sean Connery (retired).
Either way the 2017 MOTOX cast couldn’t match the original and I doubt an updated DOTN will.

The Original Movie, it was so good. It won best Costumes at the oscars, and Angela Lansbury was on the run for being nominated as best supporting actress. It will be fantastic if she can play the role of Bette Davis now…
The main problem of the MOTOX, it was definetely Brannagh. His performance was awful. It was more about showing his performance than the rest of the cast, who i think they were quite good.October 1, 2018 at 10:05 am #1202644092

Would love to see Maggie Smith/ Angela lansbury playing Mrs Van Schuyler but I also think someone like Meryl Streep would be amazing
Nicole Kidman as Salome
Emma Stone as Rosalie
Octavia Spenser – miss Bowers
Kiera Knightly – Jacqueline

Benedict Cumberatch – Colonel Race
Jk Simmons – Dr Bessner
