Tom Shepherd, is in the works at Columbia Pictures with Roth Kirschenbaum Films set to produce.
The action-adventure pic, which is being pitched as Sherlock Holmes meets The Thomas Crown Affair,
finds a young, adventurous Agatha Christie joining Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle on a mission to track down the whereabouts of a missing oil
According to The Tracking Board:
Shepherd’s script is reminiscent of another Agatha Christie-inspired project, Agatha from writer Allison Schroeder.
Schroeder’s spec similarly sees the crime novelist set in an
action-adventure story, but surmises what happened during a period of 11
days during which she went missing. That project was set up at
Paramount with Mary Parent set to produce through her Disruption
Entertainment, but in the wake of Parent’s move to Legendary, the
project’s fate – like many Disruption projects – remains unclear.
Furthermore, Will Gluck, who was previously attached to direct Agatha,
appears to have fallen off. That gives Columbia an opportunity to
develop their competing Christie project, which is seeking a Margot
Robbie-type for the titular heroine.
