Ridley Scott and Simon Kinberg board 'Murder on the Orient Express' remake
Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express" is leaving the station once again.
20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to the famous mystery, and Ridley Scott ("Alien," "Gladiator") will produce along with Mark Gordon ("Source Code") and Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Days of Future Past").
While stranded onboard an opulent train in 1930s Eastern Europe, famed detective Hercule Poirot must solve a murder involving some of the voyage's wealthy passengers.
The 1934 novel was famously brought to the big screen in 1974, with an all-star cast that included Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, Vanessa Redgrave, and Anthony Perkins. Albert Finney played Poirot.
While Scott will co-produce the new version, it's unlikely that he will direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter, as he is currently filming the Moses story "Exodus" and is reportedly gearing up to helm "Prometheus 2."
