Marwan Kenzari joins Murder On The Orient Express

Kenneth Branagh (Cinderella) may have missed out on hiring Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) for his new adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express, but that hasn't stopped him locking in some major acting talent. Now news arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Dutch actor Marwan Kenzari (Ben Hur) is now on board.

Adapted for the screen by Michael Green (Green Lantern), Branagh's take on the tale of Hercule Poirot (with the director nabbing the role of the detective himself) investigating a murder aboard the titular train already boasts an eclectic assortment of actors that includes Johnny Depp (Alice In Wonderland), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Judi Dench (Skyfall), Michelle Pfeiffer (Dark Shadows), Michael Peña (Ant-Man), Derek Jacobi (Anonymous), Tom Bateman (Creditors), Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) and Hamilton alumnus Leslie Odom Jr. Kenzari, meanwhile, has won the role of the French conductor of the train.

Kenzari has a few movies heading our way, including Universal Pictures' new The Mummy which stars Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) and Netflix's What Happened To Monday?, featuring Noomi Rapace (Prometheus) and Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs).
