After his major motion picture titular lead in Victoria and Abdul, actor Ali Fazal will now be starring opposite the globally renowned and loved, Gal Gadot, most famously known as playing the role of Wonder Woman. The duo is set to star in the on-screen modern-day adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel Death On The Nile, directed by Kenneth Branagh who has to his credit films like Thor series, Hamlet, As You Like It, Murder On The Orient Express amongst many others. The film explores the investigation of certain mysterious events that occur on a cruise ship on the Nile. As the investigation proceeds, a handful of suspects come into question, who are then put to death, deepening the mystery further.
Confirming the news, Ali said, “Yes I am part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to being a part of it. My mother and I have always been huge fans of Agatha Christie Novels."
A 20th Century Fox presentation, apart from Ali and Gal, stars Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp and others. Death On The Nile has previously been made in 1978 starring legends including Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, Mia Farrow and others. The film goes on floors later this month in London and parts of Europe.
