As we patiently await for the theatrical release of the adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, another Christie adaption will be released this year.
Sony Pictures debut the trailer for the upcoming mystery, Crooked House, an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1949 detective novel, starring Max Irons, Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson, Christina Hendricks, Terence Stamp, Stefanie Martini, Julian Sands, Amanda Abbington, Christian McKay, and Honor Kneafsey.
Here is the synopsis of the film:
In Agatha Christie’s most twisted tale, the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch is investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather’s murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets. On the sprawling estate, amidst a poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy in a truly crooked house, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man’s widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close).
Crooked House will be released VOD on November 21 and in cinemas on December 22.
