Actor Ali Fazal has bagged a role alongside Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in a film based on author Agatha Christies Death on The Nile.
After playing the titular lead in Victoria & Abdul, Ali will now be seen in the on-screen modern-day adaptation of the novel.
It explores the investigation Hercule Poirot sets upon due to certain mysterious events that occur on a cruise ship on the nile. A murder. As the investigation goes on and a handful of suspects come into question, several of the suspects also meet their demise, further deepening the mystery.
The film, to be directed by Kenneth Branagh, is said to be a follow up to the hit “Murder on the Orient Express”.
Ali said: “I am part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to being a part of it. My mother and I have always been huge fans of Agatha Christie novels.”
