Story by Jack Foley

JENNIFER Garner is to bring Agatha Christie’s elderly sleuth Miss Marple back to the big screen in a distinctly younger guise.

The actress will play Jane Marple in Disney’s adaptation, which is being viewed as a possible female version to Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock Holmes franchise.

Garner, who will shortly be seen alongside Russell Brand in Arthur, will also produce the film.
