Agatha Christie To Kill Again on the Big Screen with Neil LaBute

It’s no secret that Agatha Christie is the best mystery writer of all time, especially when the deaths involve British people being incredibly polite and understanding about the whole thing. There are several of her books that still need big screen adaptations, and it looks like Gosford Park screenwriter Julian Fellowes will be taking on one of them.

According to Cinema Blend, Fellowes will be penning the script for Crooked House, which tells the story of a man who is told he can’t marry his fiancee until her grandfather’s murder is solved. Death at a Funeral director Neil LaBute will be helming the project.

This is fantastic beyond words. Christie’s work has been relegated to better-than-average television movies on BBC for far too long, and it’s time that her twists and turns got a bigger stage to play on. Plus, it’s another excuse to go watch Murder By Death for a 15th time.
