Helen Mirren, Pierce Brosnan, and Ben Kingsley: Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club

Three of the four leading roles in the film adaptation of Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club have been cast with Helen Mirren, 
Pierce Brosnan, and Ben Kingsley set to play septuagenarian sleuths in a retirement community. Chris Columbus, whose previous credits include Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire and the first two Harry Potter films, is set to direct.

The fastest-selling adult crime debut in recorded history (according to The Guardian), the novel is set in the fictional Kentish town of Fairhaven and features the four friends solving the murder of a property developer.

How exciting! Can't wait!

This is a great cast. I hope the movie follows the plot of the book.

Helen Mirren is truly dream casting for Elizabeth! Wonder who will be playing Joyce.
