What Murder On The Orient Express And Its Sequels Are Trying To Do
Murder on the Orient Express is arguably Agatha Christie's most well-known novel, but it isn't the only popular mystery tale she delivered to the public. Over her lifetime, the author penned 66 books (73 if you count the romance books she wrote under a pseudonym) and 14 short story collections, leaving behind a body of work that will be treasured by mystery and literature aficionados for years to come. Murder on the Orient Express was recently re-adapted for the big screen under director/actor Kenneth Branagh, and it was announced that a sequel based on Death on the Nile is in development. But Branagh is already thinking past this upcoming movie, as he's interested in constructing a Poirot/Christie "cinematic universe."
