Allison Schroeder

Agatha Christie

In 1926, mystery writer Agatha Christie disappeared for 11 days. She returned, but never explained what happened. A few writers have tried to fictionally solve that mystery, and now, according to Deadline Hollywood, Paramount is set to purchase Agatha, a spec script from Allison Schroeder (Mean Girls 2) that turns those 11 days into an action adventure. The article claims that the tone of the screenplay is “a female Sherlock Holmes meets Romancing the Stone.” Plus, Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends with Benefits) is set to direct. It’s unclear right now what relationship this project has to the 1979 movie of the same name where Vanessa Redgrave plays Christie during the 11-day disappearance, although it’s highly doubtful the new take will focus on Christie plotting revenge on her unfaithful husband. Or that it will borrow from the Doctor Who episode where Christie helps solve a mystery involving a giant killer wasp at her own house party.
