Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming mystery thriller. 

2017 Murder on the Orient Express

What Is The Plot Of Death On The Nile?

Death On The Nile is based on Agatha Christie's novel of the same name. It is a sequel to the 2017's Murder on the Orient Express. It follows the story of an obsessive-compulsive detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), as he tries to uncover the murderers behind death cases.

After solving the case in the 2013 film Murder on the Orient Express, Poirot' was asked to investigate "a death in the Nile." The detective agreed, which rang the bell for a possible sequel in the future.

In Death On The Nile, Poirot's skills will again be put to use as he investigates the murder of a young heiress in Egypt.

Death On The Nile (2020) will be the first cinematic adaptation of Christie's novel since Death on the Nile (1978), which stars Peter Ustinov as Poirot. 

When Will Death On The Nile Release?

Death On The Nile is set to release on October 9, 2020. The film is already in post-production, and there is no recent news regarding another possible delay. Death On The Nile was supposed to release on December 20, 2019. However, Fox decided to move the release back to 2020 to avoid competing with Star Wars 9. 

Hopefully, no more delays will ever happen.

The team was lucky enough to have wrapped up the production months before the Coronavirus pandemic hit worldwide. Principal photography began in September 2019 and wrapped up in December 2019.
