A Haunting In Venice (2023, D: Branagh) -- third Hercule Poirot film

Will there be more Agatha Christie adaptations?

We have the Poirot franchise, we have other Christie stories. I love these films, I love Ken [Branagh, who plays detective Hercule Poirot and directed Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile]. We have a third script written, by Michael Green, that is a pretty daring shift in genre and in tone. Itís post-war Venice and an adaptation of one of the lesser-known novels. So I think youíll see the mustache again.

Would the mustache direct as well?

Yes. Ken is Poirot, but Ken is also the series

I really liked Death on the Nile and it's gotten mostly positive reaction.

it's now made over $102M worldwide, so its not a complete disaster. So I hope the 3rd film does get greenlit. I do hope Death on the Nile catches on when it gets to Hulu and HBO Max in the next few months.

It's funny that we are going to have dueling Poirot/Knives Out trilogies.

Kenneth Branagh has set another A-list ensemble for his next Agatha Christie adaptation with Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly, Riccardo Scamarico and Michelle Yeoh joining the cast of A Haunting In Venice for 20th Century. Branagh is set to reprise his role as Inspector Hercule Poirot and will also return to direct the pic. Michael Green adapted the script, which is based on Christie’s Hallowe’en Party, with production currently under way at Pinewood Studios outside of London.

Set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve, “A Haunting in Venice” is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a sťance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.

This is an oddity series for me. I found both MotOE and DotN to be mediocre at best. Mostly underwhelming. However, Iím always excited for more movies.

Hopefully shooting in Venice instead of a green screen this time.




And calling that lineup an "A-List Ensemble" is being very generous with the terminology.

Did you forget what you wrote? You gave Death on the Nile a good review 6 months ago.

I know all this content that keeps coming out is a blur

Kelly Reilly has grown in popularity because of Yellowstone and Yeoh is probably the most popular sheís ever been in her career. But I donít think either are A List.

Death is just the beginning. Watch the trailer for #AHauntingInVenice in theaters this fall.

The unsettling supernatural thriller based upon the novel “Hallowe’en Party” by Agatha Christie and directed by and starring Oscarģ winner Kenneth Branagh as famed detective Hercule Poirot, will open in theaters nationwide September 15, 2023.

“A Haunting in Venice” is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve, “A Haunting in Venice” is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a sťance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.

Reuniting the team of filmmakers behind 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express” and 2022’s “Death on the Nile,” the film is directed by Kenneth Branagh with a screenplay by Oscarģ nominee Michael Green (“Logan”) based upon Agatha Christie’s novel Hallowe’en Party. The producers are Kenneth Branagh, Judy Hofflund, Ridley Scott, and Simon Kinberg, with Louise Killin, James Prichard, and Mark Gordon serving as executive producers. A brilliant acting ensemble portrays a cast of unforgettable characters, including Kenneth Branagh, Kyle Allen (“Rosaline”), Camille Cottin (“Call My Agent”), Jamie Dornan (“Belfast”), Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), Jude Hill (“Belfast”), Ali Khan (“6 Underground”), Emma Laird (“Mayor of Kingstown”), Kelly Reilly (“Yellowstone”), Riccardo Scamarcio (“Caravaggio’s Shadow”), and recent Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”).

Great trailer. You wouldn't even know it was a Poirot flick until the very end of it. I'm there.

I liked the trailer and it was cool seeing Michelle Yeoh in it. Poirot grew back his trademark 'stache after shaving it in Death on the Nile. Honestly I'm a little surprised this series got a third movie. But, I guess Disney likes Branagh and the series and Death on the Nile did okay considering it came out when the theater business was still disrupted by COVID.

Yeah Iíll be back for more, even though Death on the Nile was pretty terrible, TBH.
I said it last year and itís still the case, the whole thing with an Agatha Christie adaptation is the draw of filling it wall-to-wall with stars. Itís a major part of the box office appeal and one that Knives Out cleverly copied. Yes, Tina Fey and Michelle Yeoh are big stars and instantly recognizable, but there were a LOT of people in that trailer who I have never seen before in my life. I think thatís going to hurt the box office.

Terrible?

I suddenly remembered who was Lois Childs, who was Mia Farrow, and then everything just came flooding back from my memory of the previous film though I saw it decades ago.
I sincerely hope that they do another one from one of the myriad of other Poirot books, and maybe something that hasn't been a film before so I might not remember who the murderer is next time.

Did the previous version have the lesbian reveal? I didn't remember that.
Was Russell Brand in brownface? I don't think he normally looks that dark-skinned. Maybe it was just his lighting?
So you changed your opinion since February 2022?

Eh, I guess I liked it more in the theater than on cable rewatch. All I took away after a cable viewing was how bad Gal Gadot was and how cheesy the green screen was. And after someone pointed out how absurd it was to have an origin story for a mustache, that was all I could think about.
I think I was still in the thrall of being back in a movie theater and seeing a Poirot fhe first time. The actress who played the Mia Farrow part was really good though.

Looks like you gotta post this in the "what was I thinking" thread now.

This movie is going to be severely hurt by a lack of actor promotion. I mean, especially with Michelle Yeoh coming off an Oscar win.

I've been queuing up these particular Murder Mystery films and I need to watch them. I was interested in this then I saw Tina Fey was in it and I my interest went up.

There is an Early Access screening next Wednesday. But, the AMC closest to me isn't participating. So I would have to buy a full price ticket at a different theater close to me.

I can't see it next weekend as I'm out of town on a work trip.
