Update (6/25/19): Annette Bening could be the next big star to board Death on the Nile.
If she signs, on the Academy Award nominee would reportedly find herself taking on the role of Euphemia in the forthcoming Agatha Christie adaptation.
So who exactly is Euphemia? Those curious to know won’t be able to look to Christie’s books for answers as it seems like the character doesn’t exist in the mystery author’s 1937 novel.
With that in mind, we’ll be interested to learn more about who Euphemia is and how she fits into the folds of famed detective, Hercule Poirot’s (Kenneth Branagh), next big case.
Bening isn’t the only huge Hollywood star poised to take a trip down the Nile in the adaptation.
Other notable stars who’ve joined the Murder on the Orient Express sequel include Letitia Wright, Armie Hammer, and Gal Gadot.

Original Story (4/19/19): Letitia Wright will be taking on an Agatha Christie classic for her next big screen role.
The upcoming adaptation from Twentieth Century Fox will serve as a sequel to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express.
The adaptation finds Kenneth Branagh returning to reprise his role as the world’s greatest detective, Hercule Poirot, only this time he’ll be boarding a riverboat cruise instead of a train.
Wright has signed on to play the role of Rosalie Otterbourne in the adaptation — a key suspect in the mystery at the heart of the story.
Based off of Chrstie’s 1937 novel of the same name, Death on the Nile finds Poirot heading to Egypt for a much-needed vacation. Once there, the detective finds himself in the midst of a love triangle turned sour.
When murder comes into play, it’ll be up to Poirot to once again get to the bottom of things and solve the case once and for all.
As with Murder on the Orient Express, the upcoming film already boasts a stellar cast with some big names attached to star.
In addition to Branagh (who will once again serve as director on the project), Wright will also be sharing the big screen with Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot and Call Me By Your Name’s Armie Hammer.
There’s currently no word on when the film is set to hit theaters.
