'Murder on the Orient Express' sequel to bring 'Death on the Nile'

With train-bound Murder on the Orient Express in the midst of an global roll-out, the movie's staff and studio are staying on track with plans for another murder mystery. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Murder on the Orient Express, which is based on the 1934 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie, also stars the filmmaker in the lead, alongside an ensemble cast, including Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe and Judi Dench. According to Variety, although Kenneth Branagh hasn't signed a deal yet to both direct and reprise Hercule Poirot for this sequel, that's expected to be rectified soon.

Murder on the Orient Express has grossed $148.2 million worldwide since its release last month.

In Christie's original Death On The Nile story, Poirot finds himself embroiled in a deadly love triangle while holidaying in Egypt.

The book was adapted into a 1978 movie with Peter Ustinov as Poirot along with Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, George Kennedy, Jane Birkin, Jack Warden, and David Niven. It won an Academy Award for best costume design. "Death on the Nile" is the next instalment in the Agatha Christie series, with Hercule Poirot back at the helm of another mystery to solve.

The new film looks well poised to follow in the footsteps of Murder on the Orient Express which was made on a modest budget of $55 million and has already raked in $150 million. Michael Green, who adapted the screenplay for Orient Express, is reportedly penning the script for Death on the Nile.
