Gal Gadot is the first big name in talks to join the Death on the Nile cast. The follow-up to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express will bring back Kenneth Branagh and his glorious mustache as Agatha Christie's famous detective Hercule Poirot.
'Murder on the Orient Express' also featured an incredible cast of supporting characters, which included actors like Josh Gad, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, Penelope Cruz, and Willem Dafoe.
Originally published in 1937, the novel focuses on detective Hercule Poirot who, on a luxury cruise on the Nile River, uncovers a murder, but finds his job complicated by the fact that a number of his suspects end up dead as well. Gal, 33, will be playing a rich heiress named Linnet Ridgeway Doyle and, as such, is the first cast member signed thus far.
