It’s been a little over a year now since we heard that Neil LaBute was set to direct an adaptation of famed mystery writer Agatha Christie’s “Crooked House,” which he would be bringing to life from a script he co-wrote with Academy Award-winning “Gosford Park” writer Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price. There was word shortly after that an impressive ensemble of talent in Julie Andrews, Matthew Goode, Gemma Arterton, and Gabriel Byrne would be filling out the plum roles the film had to offer – but it looks as if that may have changed entirely.

THR reports Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired all rights in the U.S., Canada and internationally for the film, which could help secure it a pretty nice release – but it should also be noted the report states that casting is about to gear up in London as the film is set for a fall production start, suggesting that the initial cast lineup may have been tossed aside for now. “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” producers Joe Abrams and Rory Gilmartin of Brilliant Films seem set on turning this adaptation into a similarly lucrative outing – ‘Hotel‘ has quietly done some solid business to the tune of $124 million worldwide – so expect for them to stack up a pretty nice little cast once again, perhaps one with some international flavor that served ‘Hotel‘ so well.

There’s no telling who may return from the initial cast iteration, but regardless, we’re sure this is one we’re going to have to look forward to — even if it’s just for the prospect of Fellowes and LaBute pairing up creatively.
