Will Gluck Tracks Down Agatha
Christie's getting an action adventure

Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie: adventurous hero? We’re not sure we see it either, but Paramount Pictures clearly can. The studio has bought Allison Schroeder’s spec screenplay Agatha, about a particular period in the legendary mystery writer's life, and Easy A’s Will Gluck is attached to direct.

Despite all of her success in mystery publishing, possibly the biggest conundrum surrounding Christie is what really happened when she went missing for 10 days in 1926. The day that her husband left to spend time with his mistress, Christie disappeared from home, turning up more than a week later as a guest at the Swan Hydropathic Hotel in Yorkshire. She never accounted for her disappearance, though one theory involved a mysterious traveller and giant wasps.

What Schroder’s script invents is being kept a secret for now, though Deadline has heard it described as Sherlock Holmes meets Romancing The Stone.

Gluck already has one big job on his schedule: he’s re-writing and preparing to direct the script for Sony’s new take on Annie, which has Beasts Of The Southern Wild Oscar nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis set in the lead.
