BOLLYWOOD star Ali Fazal is the latest to join Kenneth Branagh’s all-star Death on the Nile.

The Murder on the Orient Express follow-up is based on another of Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name, and follows master detective Hercule Poirot – once again played by Branagh – as he becomes involved in a love triangle gone murderously bad while on vacation in Egypt.

Fazal , who starred alongside Dame Judi Dench in Victoria and Abdul, will join an A-list cast that also features Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Black Panther breakout Letitia Wright.

Michael Green wrote the movie, which is due to begin filming later this month (September 2019).

Death on the Nile is currently set for release on December 20, 2020.
