Date: 4th October 2018
Armie Hammer has joined Gal Gadot in Fox's "Death on the Nile", a follow-up to last year's "Murder on the Orient Express".
The studio has hired "Orient Express" director Kenneth Branagh and screenwriter Michael Green to return for "Death on the Nile". Branagh will reprise his role of the mustachioed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.
Production on "Death on the Nile" is expected to begin in mid-2019, so it’s doubtful that the movie will arrive in theaters on its current release date of Dec. 20, 2019. It's not yet clear which roles Hammer and Gadot will play.
"Death on the Nile" will take Branagh and Walsh from a train to a cruise ship, as the vacation of Christie's most famous character, Hercule Poirot, is rudely interrupted by a murder that takes place during his cruise along the Nile River.
