The Mark Gordon Company Releases “Murder on the Orient Express”

The latest film from The Mark Gordon Company, the production company behind The Silver Chair, is an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. Reviews are so far somewhat mixed, but it currently has a 61% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Does this bode well for future book adaptations from The Mark Gordon Company?

The film also has other ties to Narnia. Kenneth Branagh, who directed the film and starred as the famous detective Hercule Poirot, was the narrator for an audiobook of The Magician’s Nephew. And Derek Jacobi, who plays Edward Henry Masterman, narrated an audiobook of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

    Branagh would be an interesting choice for future installments.

    Just saw it. There's a reference to the British Consul in it. 😛
