The cast complement for Kenneth Branagh's new movie of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express is continuing to grow. Dutch actor Marwan Kenzari, who has appeared in such film as Ben-Hur and the upcoming The Promise, is now on board.

Branagh's take on the tale of Hercule Poirot (with the director nabbing the role of the detective himself) investigating a slaying aboard the titular train already boasts an eclectic assortment of actors that includes Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Judi Dench, Michael Pena and Hamilton veteran Leslie Odom Jr.

Kenzari has won the role of the French conductor of the train, and the script for 20th Century Fox's new take on the tale comes from Michael Green. The actor has a few movies headed our way, including Universal's new The Mummy which stars Tom Cruise and Netflix's What Happened To Monday?, featuring Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close.
