Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired North American rights to Crooked House, a film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic mystery novel. 
 
The film is being directed by Neil LaBute, based on a script he wrote with Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park, Downton Abbey) and Tim Rose Price. The cast includes Gemma Arterton, Emma Thompson, Michael Sheen and Gabriel Byrne, according to IMBD.
 
Commenting on the film, LaBute said: “It’s It's been far too long since we've seen Agatha Christie's work on the big screen,” LaBute said. “Crooked House is one of her best and most surprising murder mysteries. It's the perfect title with which to bring a whole new audience to Christie, while delivering a wonderfully suspenseful experience to her fans.”
