Director Kenneth Branagh already dropped a hint as to what book he would like to adapt next, Death on the Nile. Now it looks like Branagh might get his wish. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a sequel is in the works at Fox based on Death on the Nile.

Death on the Nile, first published in 1937, saw the detective on a vacation in Egypt and becoming involved in a love triangle gone murderously bad. The novel once again featured socialites, social climbers and high society’s help in the cast.

Branagh isn’t confirmed to return yet in either capacity, but he is expected to. Meanwhile, Michael Green, who adapted the screenplay for Orient Express, is penning the script.
