With filming getting underway today, it has been announced that Christina Hendricks, Gillian Anderson, Terence Stamp, Stefanie Martini and Honor Keafsey have joined Max Irons and Glenn Close in director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Crooked House.

Based on Christie’s 1949 detective novel and scripted by Julian Fellows (Downton Abbey), Crooked House stars Irons as Charles Hayward, a private investigator looking to solve a grisly murder where everyone is a suspect – including Sophia (Martini), his fiancee, and the victim’s granddaughter.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Agatha Christie’s Crooked House – one of her own personal favorites, and one that has never been filmed before – to the big screen,” states producer Joe Abrams of Brilliant Films.

Filming Begins on Agatha Christie’s ‘Crooked House,’ with Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson

London — The Agatha Christie renaissance continues.

Principal photography has started in Britain on a big-screen adaptation of the mystery author’s 1940s novel “Crooked House,” a whodunit centering on the murder of a rich, cantankerous old patriarch. The movie stars Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson, Christina Hendricks, Max Irons and Stefanie Martini, among others.

The project is the latest Christie story set for translation to the screen. Last month, the BBC announced that it had green-lit a slate of seven Christie adaptations following the critical and ratings success of “And Then There Were None,” which aired in Britain last December. Big-screen treatments of “Witness for the Prosecution” and “Murder on the Orient Express,” both by Fox, are also being developed.

The first of the coming BBC series, “Ordeal by Innocence,” was rated by Christie as one of two personal favorites out of her considerable body of work. The other favorite was “Crooked House. »

Dark Places review – sibling thriller verges on the silly

24 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Charlize Theron stars in this creaky satanic mystery adaptation from Gone Girl author, Gillian Flynn

The week’s second under-par release featuring Chloë Grace Moretz is an adaptation of Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn’s typically twisty 2009 potboiler. The producer and star, Charlize Theron, plays Libby Day, a tormented soul whose brother, Ben, has been in prison for murdering his mother and sisters ever since Libby testified against him as an eight-year-old. Lyle Wirth (Nicholas Hoult), an amateur criminologist-cum-murder-geek, and his “kill club” cohorts believe that Ben is innocent, but Libby is unwilling to face up to the guilty secrets that lurk in her own... dark places!

The premise is creaky and the satanic-scare backstory more intriguingly handled in Alejandro Amenábar’s wrongly ridiculed Regression. But Sarah’s Key director Gilles Paquet-Brenner invests the split-time action with some brooding menace and the cinematographer, Barry Ackroyd, does his best to lend some urgency, »
