This third film in Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie series, following Nile and Murder on the Orient Express will reportedly be an adaptation of her novel “Hallowe’en Party” and will titled A Haunting In Venice.
While the cast was revealed a few months back, little else has been revealed about the film until now.
This weekend, the popular gossip site Just Jared leaked photos from the set. In them, you can see your first look at the film’s A-list cast members including Tina Fey and Ricardo Scamarcio.

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 séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.
Micheal Green, who wrote the first two movies, wrote A Haunting in Venice. The project also reunites producer Judy Hofflund, and executive producers Louise Killin and James Prichard, along with filmmakers Ridley Scott, Simon Kinberg, and Mark Gordon.
