New A Haunting in Venice Featurette Explores the Eerie Ensemble

A Haunting in Venice opens in theaters on September 15th.

20th Century Studios has released a new featurette for the upcoming thriller, A Haunting in Venice, and this one showcases the ensemble cast of filmmaker Kenneth Branagh's latest Agatha Christie adaptation. In the featurette, which you can check out for yourself in the video below, the actors speak about the experience of making the film, with Branagh in particular talking about how the actors each brought humanity to the film that made things all the more haunting.

"All of these wonderful actors provide a humanity that is very touching and very haunting, and all of which confuses you and you are in quite the conundrum as to whodunit," Branagh said.

What is A Haunting in Venice About?

A Haunting in Venice is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows' Eve and is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world's most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets. Reuniting many of the filmmakers behind 2017's Murder on the Orient Express and 2022's Death on the Nile, the film is directed by Kenneth Branagh with a screenplay by Oscar nominee Michael Green based upon Agatha Christie's novel Hallowe'en Party. The producers are Kenneth Branagh, p.g.a., Judy Hofflund, p.g.a., Ridley Scott, and Simon Kinberg, with Louise Killin, James Prichard, and Mark Gordon serving as executive producers. 

The film stars Branagh, Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly, Riccardo Scamarcio, and Michelle Yeoh.
