Penelope Cruz Will Play A Role In Murder On The Orient Express
Cruz joins an impressive cast that includes such names as Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley. Depp will play Ratchett, Preiffer is set to portray Mrs. Hubbard, and Ridley will appear as Mary Debenham. In addition, Branagh himself will play a role in the film, starring as the legendary Hercule Poirot:
Oscar winner Judi Dench portrays Princess Dragomiroff, while Lucy Boynton is Countess Andrenyi. Tom Bateman plays Bouc, acclaimed stage actor and Tony winner Derek Jacobi portrays Masterman, Michael Pe?a is Marquez, Josh Gad is Hector McQueen and “Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr. plays Doctor Arbuthnot.
Agatha Christie’s novel, published in 1934, is considered one of the most ingenious stories ever devised. It revolves around a murder onboard the famous train, and Belgian detective Hercule Poirot must solve the case – but there are a number of passengers who could potentially be the murderer.
Murder on the Orient Express begins production in November in London.
Ridley Scott (The Martian), Simon Kinberg (The Martian, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Mark Gordon (Steve Jobs) and Branagh will produce the film. Michael Schaefer, Aditya Sood and Judy Hofflund will also produce.
