Thesp set for Disney adaptation
Thesp, who is currently lensing “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” for Disney, will play Jane Marple in the adaptation that Disney hopes will be a female version of Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes franchise.
Christie penned a dozen mysteries featuring the Marple character.
Mark Frost (“Twin Peaks,” “Fanstic Four” and follow up “Fantasic Four: Rise of the Silver Surver”) will write the script that Garner and producing partner Juliana Janes will shepherd through their Vandalia Films shingle.
Garner next appears in WB’s comedy “Arthur.”
