BBC revealed the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s The ABC Murders. it is a three-part limited series stars John Malkovich in the role of Hercule Poirot and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) as Inspector Crome.
The new TV series looks awesome. Malkovich adds his own exceptional flavor to the character Hercule Poirot, and I am sure you are going to love his acting skills and the new mini series for sure.
The story is based in the 1930s, which is “a time when the nation is dangerously divided, with mistrust and hostility on the rise. In the midst of this tension, Poirot faces a serial killer known only as ‘A.B.C.’ First the killer strikes in Andover, then Bexhill. As the murder count rises, the only clue is the copy of the ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot’s investigations are thwarted at every turn by an enemy determined to outsmart him. If the detective is to match his nemesis, then everything about him will be called into question: his authority, integrity, past, and identity.”
The ABC Murders also stars Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch, The Honourable Woman), Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks, Chained), Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones), Bronwyn James (Harlots), Freya Mavor (The Sense of an Ending), Shirley Henderson (Harry Potter, Happy Valley), Kevin McNally (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Legend), Gregor Fisher (Love Actually) and Jack Farthing (The Riot Club).
The series is being developed by BAFTA-nominated writer Sarah Phelps and director Alex Gabassi.
