Murder On The Orient Express Is Getting A Remake

It’s official, everything is going to get remade eventually. The latest classic getting a makeover: Murder on the Orient Express, reports Variety.

Ridley Scott, Mark Gordon and Simon Kinberg are producing it, but Scott will not be directing it and it has no writers yet. So, now is the time to make noise if you’re so inclined.

The film will be based on the 1934 Agatha Christie novel of the same name, but most people obviously know the 1974 Sidney Lumet film starring Albert Finney and Ingrid Bergman. It made a lot of money and was nominated for a bunch of Oscars, so Scott, Gordon and Kinberg have a lot to live up to, to say the least.
