Sony Picks Up Neil LaBute's Agatha Christie Adaptation 'Crooked House'; Film Looks To Be Recasting

The Playlist By Benjamin Wright | The Playlist July 10, 2012 at 12:22PM

It’s been a little over a year now since we heard that Neil LaBute was set to direct an adaptation of famed mystery writer Agatha Christie’s “Crooked House,” which he would be bringing to life from a script he co-wrote with Academy Award-winning “Gosford Park” writer Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price. There was word shortly after that an impressive ensemble of talent in Julie Andrews, Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, and Gabriel Byrne would be filling out the plum roles the film had to offer – but it looks as if that may have changed entirely.

Crooked House Neil LaBute

It’s been a little over a year now since we heard that Neil LaBute was set to direct an adaptation of famed mystery writer Agatha Christie’s “Crooked House,” which he would be bringing to life from a script he co-wrote with Academy Award-winning “Gosford Park” writer Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price. There was word shortly after that an impressive ensemble of talent in Julie Andrews, Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, and Gabriel Byrne would be filling out the plum roles the film had to offer – but it looks as if that may have changed entirely.

THR reports Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired all rights in the U.S., Canada and internationally for the film, which could help secure it a pretty nice release – but it should also be noted the report states that casting is about to gear up in London as the film is set for a fall production start, suggesting that the initial cast lineup may have been tossed aside for now. Producers Joe Abrams and Rory Gilmartin of Brilliant Films are behind the project, and we'll be interested to see what kind of talent they pull around the film with LaBute.

There’s no telling who may return from the initial cast iteration, but regardless, we’re sure this is one we’re going to have to look forward to -- even if it's just for the prospect of Fellowes and LaBute pairing up creatively.
