A remake of the 1974 film based on Agatha Christie's 1934 book
Murder on the Orient Express (2017) will feature Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad and others.
The Agatha Christie classic involves a murder -obviously- on a train going from Turkey to France. Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is on board and puts the pieces of the puzzle together to discover who did it in the whodunnit.
Albert Finney played the original Poirot whose part will be taken over by Kenneth Branagh.

Agatha Christie passed in 1976 but according to her Twitter account, she is, "The world's most successful novelist, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare."
