The feature is inspired by the 1969 Christie novel Hallowe’en Party. The story of that novel was set in motion when a 13-year-old girl who was witness to a murder is found dead in an apple-bobbing tub. The studio logline reads: “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.”

Michael Green wrote the script for the feature, due out Sept. 15.
