Disney Acquires Film Rights to Miss Marple Character

Agatha Christie

Disney has acquired the film rights to Agatha Christie's character Miss Marple, and envisions creating a comtemporary setting for the amateur sleuth. Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues, Twin Peaks) will write the screenplay, which is expected to be an original story, not one adapted from one of the many Christie novels.

Several actresses have played Jane Marple over the years, starting with Margaret Rutherford, who portrayed her in the 1961 film Murder She Said. The most recent made-for-television adaptations star Julia McKenzie.
