Amazon Prime Video released a trailer for “The ABC Murders,” an adaptation of the novel of the same name originally written by Agatha Christie. The series is the second of three dramatic series adaptations that Amazon will release through a partnership with Agatha Christie Limited. This series and the other two will be available for Prime Video in the US.
Adapted by Sarah Phelps (The Casual Vacancy, The Crimson Field), the three-part limited series stars two-time Academy Award-nominee John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich) as one of literature’s most famous detectives, the great Hercule Poirot.
The story takes place in the year 1933, and a killer is on the loose using Britain’s railway network as a killing ground. The killer uses the alias ABC, and strikes in a methodical pattern, leaving a copy of the ABC railway guide at the scene of each of murder. As Poirot (John Malkovich) attempts to investigate he is thwarted on every front. Amazon teased the series adding, “If he is to match his most cunning nemesis, everything about him will be called into question: his authority, his integrity, his identity.”
The ABC Murders also stars Rupert Grint (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Andrew Buchan (All the Money in the World), Anya Chalotra (Wanderlust), Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks), Jack Farthing (Poldark), Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones), Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones’s Baby), Bronwyn James (Harlots), Freya Mavor (The White Queen), and Michael Shaeffer (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
