Kenneth Branagh is teasing the return of "old friends" in his planned sequel to "Murder on the Orient Express". Branagh is expected to both direct and reprise his role as the fancifully mustachioed lead character Detective Hercule Poirot in "Death on the Nile," another mystery based on an Agatha Christie novel, which screenwriter Michael Green will return to adapt.Christie's 1937 novel "Death on the Nile" was previously adapted into a 1978 film starring Peter Ustinov, Bette Davis, Mia Farrow and Maggie Smith.With a wealth of source material to draw upon, Branagh also endorses the idea of a Poirot-slash-Christie "cinematic universe" – the popular term for a series of interlocking films (usually superhero blockbusters) that assemble various characters.
