Set during a luxurious cruise on the Nile River, Death On The Nile turns into another classic Christie whodunnit when a murder is discovered onboard.
Gadot will play Linnet Ridgeway Doyle, a rich heiress who marries a man who had previously been engaged to her best friend, a decision that brings dire consequences...
The new movie comes after the success of Murder On The Orient Express, which grossed almost $350 million at the box office.
