After several controversies involving Armie Hammer, Disney today announced a new postponement of “Death on the Nile”, an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s book that will follow the film “Murder on the Orient Express”.
Hammer stars in the production alongside Gal Gadot.
The actor was recently charged with cannibalism and is under investigation for rape. The most recent complaint was brought by a young woman named Effie, who claimed the actor raped her for more than four hours.
Additionally, Hammer was abandoned by his agency WME and was “forced to resign” from all of his upcoming projects.
Now Disney is deciding how it will proceed with “ Death on the Nile, ” which has been postponed again and is now slated for February 11, 2022.
Watch the trailer:
Kenneth Branagh returns as Detective Hercule Poirot, and Tom Bateman also returns as Goat.
Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer are the stars.
While on vacation in Egypt, Hercule Poirot must investigate the murder of a young heiress, a crime that took place on board a ship on the Nile. One crime, many suspects. An astonishing, luxurious and mysterious look that piques curiosity. You have never seen a crime like this.
Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders and Letitia Wright complete the cast.
Michael Green, responsible for the adaptation of “Expresso no Oriente”, returns as screenwriter.
“Death on the Nile” was published in 1937, just three years after “Murder on the Orient Express”.
Agatha Christie’s work was adapted for theaters in 1978, but failed at the box office, grossing just $ 14 million. The adaptation, however, won an Oscar for best costume design.
