20th Century Studios and Disney are producing another Christie Agatha adaptation and this is for the classic novel And then there was none. The project will be developed by Seberg scriptwriters and writing partners of husband and wife Anna Waterhouse Y Shrapnel Joe.
Disney and producer Shawn levy (Strange things) plan to keep the story in its pre-World War II environment, which is the period when Christie wrote the novel, but the film will have a new version of the story.
Christie's novel tells the story of "10 seemingly disparate individuals invited to an isolated island, with house guests killed one by one during the course of their stay."
Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the twentieth century of Murder on the Orient ExpressAnd he is currently working on Death on the Nile. This new movie will not be connected to those mysteries of Hercule Poirot. This will be a completely separate project.
Shrapnel and Waterhouse previously worked in Captain Marvel and they are also developing a new film project with Legendary Pictures titled The big machine, which is based on the Brian K. Vaughn science fiction comic Ex machina. The most recently adapted editorial team Lady Daphne Du MaurierClassic gothic novel, Rebecca, for Netflix and Working Title.
Here is a more detailed description of the story:
Ten strangers arrive on an island invited by an unknown host. Each of them has a secret to hide and a crime for which they must pay. Strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, a rude detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing bachelor, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are collected. Who will survive? And who is the murderer? Copies of a sinister lullaby stored in each room, the murders mimic the horrible fate of their "Ten little child soldiers."
This is the story that made Agatha Christie the best selling novelist of all time and is read all over the world in more than 50 languages. "It was so difficult to do," he writes, "that the idea had fascinated me." It was an idea that is now the basis of many Hollywood horror movies and has become a cliché for the modern public, but it was Agatha Christie who was the first to do so and with such success that history has become her piece more adapted.
I love a good murder mystery of Agatha Christie and I hope to see this great story of yours brought to life.
