Get Ready for A Spooky Ride: “A Haunting in Venice” Adds a Personal Twist with a Character Based on Agatha Christie

Hold onto your seats, mystery fans! The upcoming thriller, “A Haunting in Venice,” just released a fresh trailer. Get this—the character played by Tina Fey, Ariadne Oliver, is a nod to Agatha Christie herself. Talk about layering mystery upon mystery.

Cast Galore

If you’ve been keeping tabs, you’d know that Kenneth Branagh is donning the detective hat for the third time in this franchise. And he’s got a brand-new ensemble, featuring talents like Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Dornan, and Kelly Reilly, to keep us guessing.

So, Who’s Who in Venice?

  • Michelle Yeoh as Mrs. Reynolds: The one apparently orchestrating the séance that goes horribly wrong.
  • Jamie Dornan as Dr. Leslie Ferrier: We don’t know much yet, but we’re watching.
  • Kelly Reilly as Rowena Drake: Another mysterious figure with unknown motives.
  • Tina Fey as Ariadne Oliver: An old pal of Poirot and this time, our Agatha Christie stand-in.

The Big Reveal

The latest snippet from 20th Century Studios is more than just a trailer; it’s an appetizer for the main course of suspense. Tina Fey’s character Ariadne Oliver is making headlines, as she’s molded after Agatha Christie herself. I had a “wait, what?” moment too.

The Séance’s Aftermath

A séance in Venice goes wrong. Think two deaths wrong! And guess what? Each new character is a suspect, including Ariadne Oliver (Tina Fey). From the glimpses we get, Mrs. Reynolds, led by Michelle Yeoh, seems to be the séance’s mastermind, and things turn eerie. Let’s just say, “dark spirits” may be involved.

All Eyes on Poirot

The common thread across the films? Our trusty Hercule Poirot. He’s solving mysteries faster than I can solve a crossword, and in this Venice thriller, he’s the only familiar face. The rest are all fresh suspects with unknown stories and motives.
