Death on the Nile films with Gal Gadot

Gal GadotPrincipal photography begins today (30 September) on Death on the Nile, directed by Kenneth Branagh. 

Branagh also reprises his role of the moustachioed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, leading a starry cast including Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Letitia Wright and Ali Fazal. 

As with his previous Twentieth Century Fox/Agatha Christie outing, Branagh will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Michael Green.

That feature, which was filmed using 65mm cameras, went on to take almost $353m at the worldwide box office, off a production budget of around $55m. 

Filming on Death on the Nile will run until Christmas with the production base at Longcross Studios

Branagh is also to executive produce and star in A Gentleman in Moscow, a TV adaptation of Amor Towles’ novel set in 1920s Russia, directed by Tom Harper.
