Kenneth Branagh has tapped some serious talent to star alongside his humongous moustache in next year’s murder-mystery Death on the Nile.

Once again employing an ensemble cast, the director/actor has selected names from every corner of the film and TV world, including stars of Marvel, DC and Game of Thrones.

Captioned “In October 2020, Kenneth Branagh returns with a whole new cast of suspects for Death on the Nile,” 20th Century Fox uploaded the big reveal announcement on Instagram this week.

As you can see, Branagh’s Agatha Christie sequel will be populated by the likes of Armie Hammer, Gal Gadot, Rose Leslie, Letitia Wright, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders – you spoil us, sir.

The movie itself concerns Detective Hercule Poirot’s investigation into the death of a young heiress on an African cruise liner.

Death on the Nile is scheduled to hit UK cinemas on October 9, 2020.
