Agatha Christie's Crooked House now filming in London: Check out this cast!

Good news for Agatha Christie fans. One of the few remaining Agatha Christie mysteries to be adapted is currently shooting in London. Christina Hendricks, Gillian Anderson, Stefanie Martini, Terence Stamp and Honor Kneafsey join Max Irons and Glenn Close in Christie’s Crooked House with Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key, Dark Places) directing.
Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes, Tim Rose Price and Brenner wrote the script. 

Deadline reports “the story follows private detective Charles Hayward who is invited to solve a gruesome crime where nobody is above suspicion, including Sophia, his client and former lover.’’

Here’s a little more from Barnes & Noble
In a sprawling, half-timbered mansion in the affluent suburb of Swinley Dean, Aristide Leonides lies dead from barbiturate poisoning. An accident? Not likely. In fact, suspicion has already fallen on his luscious widow, a cunning beauty fifty years his junior, set to inherit a sizeable fortune, and rumored to be carrying on with a strapping young tutor comfortably ensconced in the family estate.

But criminologist Charles Hayward is casting his own doubts on the innocence of the entire Leonides brood. He knows them intimately. And he's certain that in a crooked house such as Three Gables, no one's on the level...

“Some years back we went through really everything that was available in terms of Agatha Christie and this book really jumped out for a number of reasons,” producer Joe Abrams told Deadline. “It’s a standalone – so it’s not a Marple or Poirot mystery – and there is a freshness to it. It won’t necessarily go with a familiar pattern. It’s driven by a young detective and an even younger ingĂ©nue who he’s had a past with and who’s either a suspect or the next victim. That’s what’s driving it.”

Good choice? I’m loving the cast! You?
