“This is a fantastic development of the Hercule Poirot character, as well as the Agatha Christie franchise.

“It is a great honor for us to continue our long collaboration with the incomparable Sir Kenneth Branagh, and we are very excited about the bold new creative direction that Ken, Michael and the rest of the crew have chosen for this latest film. We also remain grateful to James Pritchard and the rest of our friends at Agatha Christie, Ltd. for their partnership and for entrusting us once again, as Poirot modestly calls himself, “probably the greatest detective in the world,” 20th said.
