Belfast-born filmmaker Kenneth Branagh could be set to remake one of the most famous murder mystery movies.

Agatha Christie's novel Murder On The Orient Express, about a mysterious death on a train, first made it onto the big screen in 1974.

Since then it has been a TV movie, and an episode of Poirot. Talks surrounding a fourth adaptation are understood to be under way, and although no casting announcements have been made, Branagh has been linked to the production.

He is well used to dark and gritty topics, having previously been behind the camera in a production of MacBeth, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
