‘Seberg’ Scribes Anna Waterhouse & Joe Shrapnel To Adapt Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’ For 20th Century Studios

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Seberg screenwriters and husband-and-wife writing partners Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel have been set by 20th Century Studios to adapt the Agatha Christie classic And Then There Were None. Disney will keep the film in its pre-World War II period in which Christie wrote the novel, but with a fresh take. Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps is producing alongside the Christie Estate.

Christie’s novel tells the story of 10 seemingly disparate individuals invited to an isolated island, with the house guests murdered one by one during the course of their stay. The book has sold more than 100 million copies in eight languages.

I’m told this will be a freestanding project and not a third installment of Christie’s Hercule Poirot mysteries at 20th Century that began with Murder on the Orient Express and continues with Death on the Nile, with Kenneth Branagh again directing and starring.
