Hendricks, Anderson Set For “Crooked House”

Christina Hendricks, Gillian Anderson, Stefanie Martini, Terence Stamp and Honor Kneafsey are all set to join Max Irons and Glenn Close in an upcoming film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s “Crooked House” at Brilliant Films and Fred Films.

One of the few of Christie’s books that hasn’t been adapted for the screen and one of her few standalones, the story follows private detective Charles Hayward who is invited to solve a gruesome crime where nobody is above suspicion, including his client and former lover.

Gilles Paquet-Brenner (“Sarah’s Key”) will direct from a script co-written with “Downton Abbey” and “Gosford Park” writer Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price. Joe Abrams, James Spring at Fred Films and Sally Wood produce and shooting has just begun in and around London.
