And Then There Were None Morten Tyldum Banner

Deadline has learned that Fox has tapped THE IMITATION GAME's Morten Tyldum to direct a movie version of the classic Agatha Christie mystery novel And Then There Were None. Apparently Tyldum is a huge fan of the book, and helped with the pitch, which reportedly "got the Christie estate excited." Eric Heisserer (2011's THE THING, FINAL DESTINATION 5) has been hired to write the screenplay.

Book synopsis from Amazon:

And Then There Were None is the story of 10 strangers, each lured to Indian Island by a mysterious host. Once his guests have arrived, the host accuses each person of murder. Unable to leave the island, the guests begin to share their darkest secrets--until they begin to die.

Morten Tyldum is currently filming for the upcoming Sony sci-fi film PASSENGERS starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, and it sounds like AND THEN HERE WERE NONE could be his next project. Who would you like to see star in the latest big screen take on Christie's novel?

sounds cool! I thought the movie Identity with John Cusack was loosely based on her book.

So...they're not going to call it 10 Little Indians? heh...I like the sound of this, it's a great story it would be nice to see a more current version.
Casting? I'd like to see Nicole Beharie get some more work. Otherwise no names are really jumping out at me.

Awesome. This is hands down one of the best mystery novels ever written, and I've been waiting for a big screen adaptation that will do it justice. However, it'll be hard for this project to compete with the BBC miniseries coming later this year in terms of casting: Charles Dance (yes, Papa Tywin Lannister himself), Miranda Richardson, Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Toby Stephens (Black Sails), Burn Gorman and Noah Taylor (both of Game Of Thrones)... Major nerd boner.

I think it's the best Poirot-less Agatha Christie story, so I'm happy that a movie is in the works. As for the cast, it really depends on the setting: modern or period?
