Daisy Enchant in First Footage From “Murder on the Orient Express”

Daisy Ridley, Johnny Depp and Judi Dench Enchant in First Footage From ‘Murder on the Orient Express’

Audiences at CinemaCon 2017 got to see an enchanting sneak peek of Fox’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” starring Daisy Ridley, Johnny Depp, Judi Dench and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The trailer for Fox’s remake of the 1974 mystery film is not yet available to the public. It opens with Ridley, Dench and Leslie Odom, Jr. sitting in the cafeteria wagon of the Orient Express. It’s lavish and beautiful and full of elegance, and the trailer soon skips to Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer making eyes at each other in the hallway of the train. However, the train soon comes to a screeching halt as it becomes evident there has been a murder on the train — and of course, everyone claims they are innocent.

At one point, the footage showed the perspective of detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh), who is interviewing the main cast of the movie. There’s crying, reiterations of innocence and pure shock as the passengers learn what has occurred on the train. 

Branagh is directing the remake. Ridley Scott of Scott Free and Simon Kinberg of Genre Films are producing with Mark Gordon and Branagh. Michael Green, who wrote the new “Blade Runner” movie for Scott, is adapting Christie’s 1934 detective novel.

The story follows gifted detective Hercule Poirot as he investigates the murder of an American tycoon aboard the titular train. Branagh stars as the detective, while Depp plays Ratchett, the murdered man.

Pfeiffer plays Mrs. Hubbard, a passenger aboard the train. Previously, Angelina Jolie had been attached to the role. Ridley stars as Mary Debenham and Dench portrays Princess Dragomiroff. Odom Jr., Lucy Boynton, Tom Bateman and Derek Jacobi are also part of the ensemble.

Christie’s novel was published in 1934. James Prichard and Hilary Strong of Agatha Christie Ltd. will executive produce.

The film is set for a November 22 release.

Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts Team for Hamlet Film “Ophelia”

Star Wars star Daisy Ridley is teaming with Naomi Watts for Ophelia, a re-imagining of Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.

Claire McCarthy (2009’s drama The Waiting City) is directing the project, which adapts the 2006 YA book by Lisa Klein. Semi Chellas (Mad Men) wrote the script.

Covert Media is financing the film that’s being produced by Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger and Sarah Curtis. Covert is handling international rights to the film.

CAA, which packaged and arranged the financing, will represent the film’s U.S. rights.

Hamlet tells of the revenge plotted by Prince Hamlet on his uncle, Claudius, who killed his father, married his mother, and took the crown of Denmark.

This project takes the female-centric view of the proceedings, telling the tale from the point of view of Ophelia, the daughter of Claudius’ chief advisor who falls for Hamlet.

(Ridley would play Ophelia while Watts would play Gertrude, the queen of Denmark and Hamlet’s mother.)

Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most tragic plays (spoiler alert: more characters die in it than in a season’s worth of Game of Thrones) but Klein’s takes a different road, landmarked with a secret wedding, characters who survive and a semi-happy ending.

Producer Bobker channeled his own inner bard to provide the following quote on the project: “Sarah, Ehren & I have always treated this film like a jewel, since there’s something extra precious in bringing to life a treasured female icon, celebrated for centuries as an alluring figure in the shadows of Shakespeare’s most famous work, without ever really having her own story told. Whether it’s for the legions of fans of romantic tragic characters, or the millions of visitors who annually seek out the classic Millais painting of Ophelia at London’s Tate Gallery, Ophelia holds a special place in the heart of the cultural canon — so we couldn’t be more thrilled to have the talented female team of Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, and Claire McCarthy set to make a film with our friends at Covert Media that’ll finally shed light on a character who’s fascinated so many for so long.”
