Next Best Adaptation is back where we review the source material of the year’s potential Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar contenders. Last time, we looked at “Rebecca” by Daphne Du Maurier and this time we are taking a look at Agatha Christie’s mystery novel “Death On The Nile” which will be released on October 21st by Netflix. Directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh as the returning Hercule Poirot, it serves as a sequel to his 2017 film “Murder On The Orient Express.” It will surely not only be compared to the source material but to the 1978 film of the same name. We mostly focus on the book here but also touch on the 1978 adaptation and what we hope for with Branagh’s latest. Joining me for this podcast I have Will Mavity and Dan Bayer.
