Jennifer Garner is Miss Marple in New Reboot

Jennifer Garner is Miss Marple in New RebootSubmit Comment
After months of negotiations, Disney has closed a deal to acquire movie rights to Agatha Christie's famous elderly detective Miss Marple. Mark Frost (Fantastic Four, "Twin Peaks") has been hired to write the screenplay.

Marple was one of Christie's most famous creations, an elderly woman constantly knitting or weeding, looking sweet and frail though the exterior masks a sharp mind with a deep understanding of the dark side of human nature.

The character first appeared on screen in 1961 in "Murder She Said," portrayed by Margaret Rutherford, who was 70 when she played the character in the first of a series of movies. Angela Landsbury played the character in 1980's "The Mirror Crack'd."

Jennifer Garner will star in the adaptation, which will lower the age of Marple.

Ain't that the truth freud

Looks like this might be more like Nancy Drew than Miss Marple.

Am I missing the point here? I thought she was supposed to be old that was the whole Idea? People would lower their guard around her so she could investigate crimes better.

"Angela Landsbury played the character in 1980's "The Mirror Crack'd.""

Who then went on to do 'Murder, She Wrote' which was really just the same thing.

"...an elderly woman constantly knitting or weeding, looking sweet and frail though the exterior masks a sharp mind with a deep understanding of the dark side of human nature."

And that pretty much sums up what every American audience absolutely does not want to see.

Explosions, sex, glib vacuous expressions, and fast cars, these are the hallmarks of a true modern American classic.
