The star-studded cast for Kenneth Branagh's next Hercule Poirot movie has been unveiled.
Following on from 2017's Murder on the Orient Express and this year's Death on the Nile, A Haunting in Venice will be based on Agatha Christie's Hallowe'en Party, taking viewers to the iconic Italian city.
Among those cast are Branagh's Belfast star Jamie Dornan, Killing Eve and Call My Agent's Camille Cottin, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Everything Everywhere All at Once's Michelle Yeoh.
Also on board are 30 Rock's Tina Fey, American Horror Story's Kyle Allen, Belfast's Jude Hill, 6 Underground's Ali Khan, Mayor of Kingstown's Emma Laird, Yellowstone's Kelly Reilly and Caravaggio’s Shadow's Riccardo Scamarcio.
A Haunting in Venice sees Branagh's Poirot retired and living in self-imposed exile in Venice, where he reluctantly attends a séance. However, one of the guests is murdered, plunging the detective into the sinister world of shadows and secrets.
"This is a fantastic development of the character Hercule Poirot, as well as the Agatha Christie franchise," Branagh said.
"Based on a complex, little-known tale of mystery set at Halloween in a pictorially ravishing city, it is an amazing opportunity for us, as filmmakers, and we are relishing the chance to deliver something truly spine-chilling for our loyal movie audiences."
Filming on the movie, which will be directed by Branagh and written by Logan's Michael Green, is due to begin next month, ahead of a cinema release in 2023.
