Jennifer Garner will be the new Miss Marple

Miss Marple went under the knife. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Garner will play on the big screen soon the detective made famous in the novels of Agatha Christie, who will, for the occasion, a few years younger! Disney Studios are preparing a new film adaptation of the adventures of Miss Marple, one of the most popular Agatha Christie, already filmed in 1961 and again in 1980.

In books as in movies, Miss Marple is an elderly woman who retired to crime solving to pass the time. But in the version of the studio with big ears, the character is a woman of thirty years which will take traits from Jennifer Garner, known to the general public for his role in the series Alias.

The actress will also be producing the film, whose writing has been given to Mark Frost, to whom we owe Twin Peaks and The Fantastic 4. If we ignore for now what Miss Marple novel will be the subject of this new adaptation, we already know that Disney hopes to build a franchise around the character, like the new Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr.

At one detail (not least): the hero is a heroine!
