Lovers of Agatha Christie telly adaptations (and Rupert Grint), settle in because the BBC are delivering the goods once again.
This time, it’s an adaptation of Christie’s 1936 classic, The ABC Murders, and stars the excellent John Malkovich as the always impressive detective Hercule Poirot – a role previously filled by the legendary David Suchet and most recently, Kenneth Branagh.
Bloke who needs no introduction, Rupert Grint, stars as Inspector Crome – a rather intense looking fella who is not Poirot’s biggest fan.
The three-part drama centres on a serial killer who signs their name only as “A.B.C” and hunts and murders his victims in alphabetical order.
A star-studded cast, Broadchurch‘s Andrew Buchan, Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks), Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones), and Shirley Henderson – the actual Moaning Myrtle – all co-star. Funnily enough, Fitzgerald stars as one Lady Hermione Clarke.
You can check out the trailer below.
Folks, Grint looks so, so different but I am 100 per cent here for it and this performance.
In a separate lil’ teaser for the series, the BBC also uploaded this baby to their Twitter account earlier this week. It shows an intense as hell interaction between Poirot and Crome.
OOOFT, they really do not like each other.
The ABC Murders will land on BBC One, December 26.
