Anne Fletcher Plots A Murder Mystery

Anne Fletcher The Proposal

She brought Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock together in The Proposal and saddled Seth Rogen with his onscreen mother Barbra Streisand in The Guilt Trip. Now director Anne Fletcher’s mind is firmly on murder. Well, Murder Mystery, a new action comedy that she’ll make for The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films.

The Amazing Spider-Man veteran James Vanderbilt is on hand to write the script, which finds a married couple trying to re-ignite the romance in their relationship by finally taking the dream honeymoon they always promised themselves but never got around to.

Things take a turn for the deadly when one of their fellow cruise passengers is found dead and they’re flung into the sort of situation that would give Poirot happy dreams: heading across Europe to track down the identity of the killer while also trying to save their marriage. See? That’s all real love stories need, a bit of death while on holiday!

There’s no word on when this one will be shooting, especially as Vanderbilt has only just kicked off work behind the keyboard. But if it doesn’t get knifed during development, it’ll likely show up within a year or so.
