French & Saunders join Death on the Nile cast

While some of us (me) don’t believe in Poirot productions that don’t involve David Suchet, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders have confirmed they do by joining in the cast of the new Death On The Nile film.

The comedy duo will be joining Annette Bening, Sophie Okonedo, Rose Leslie and Gal Gadot as part of the cast and Kenneth Branagh will be reprising his role of Poirot (with a preposterous moustache) and director of the film.

It’s not been confirmed, but we at Funny Women really hope that French and Saunders will be playing parts reminiscent of their supporting artists characters in their sketch show film spoofs.

Filming begins today at Longcross Studios in Surrey and on location in Egypt.

The film is scheduled for release on 9th October 2020.
