The classic novel has an intriguing and engaging plot

’s mystery book And Then There Were None is getting a screen adaptation as is collaborating with 2oth Century Studios to bring the classic work to life.

The project will be developed by screenwriters and writing partners (who are also husband and wife) Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel.

The classic novel tells the story of 10 seemingly disparate people who are invited to a remote island, with the guests murdered one after the other during the duration of their stay.

Disney and producer Shawn Levy will keep the pre-World War II setting but there will be a fresh take on the story.

A more detailed plot description of the story reads:

Ten strangers arrive on an island invited by an unknown host. Each of them has a secret to hide and a crime for which they must pay. The strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.

This is the story that made Agatha Christie the best-selling novelist of all time and is read the world over in more than 50 languages. “It was so difficult to do,” she writes, “that the idea had fascinated me.” It was an idea which is now the basis for many Hollywood horror films and has become a cliché to modern audiences, but it was Agatha Christie who was the first to do it and so successfully that the story has become her most adapted piece.

Sounds like one heck of a plot and the caliber of the two production companies will give the film the publicity it needs.

Agatha Christie‘s intricate stories are engaging and it would be a delight to see a well-executed adaptation with talented actors grace the big screen.
