Two fairly odd projects featuring classic crime writers Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle are in the pipeline.
Paramount screenwriter Annie Neal is currently working on a script for Agatha. Apparently the film will be an action adventure focusing on the author’s famous 11-day disappearance.
Meanwhile, Fox have commissioned a new ‘Victorian X-Files’ show called Houdini and Doyle. The sceptical escapologist and not-so-sceptical novelist will team up to solve crimes with a supernatural flavour.
