Irish Eye on Hollywood:

on the Orient Express

The Belfast-born lover of Shakespeare – who in recent years has turned to popcorn fare like Thor and Cinderella – is planning to make a new version of the Agatha Christie mystery Murder on the Orient Express. Branagh is hoping the fourth time is a charm, as Christie’s tale of death on a train has been thrice made already. No word just yet though on a cast or release date for Branagh’s latest. ♦
