The first teaser-trailer for the upcoming Netflix production ‘And Then There Were None’ was released yesterday and the streaming giant just let the trailer do the talking.
And with a launch date of October 4th 2019, this promises to be one of the more anticipated Netflix releases of the year. This British adaptation of the BBC mini-series of the same name had an incredible success when it aired in its own right in 2012, with the final episode of the series clocking up an average of 18.1 million viewers.
Based on Agatha Christie’s short story ‘Three Blind Mice’, the two-part series will feature a huge cast including Tom Burke, Will Poulter, Russell Tovey, James Norton, and Moira Stewart and was written by Richard Rayner. Its story will center around seven strangers who arrive at a remote island and must remain completely unknown to each other in order to solve a deadly murder. As with most of Christie’s murder mysteries, there will be a definite plot element to the murder mystery, which seems to be inevitable to pick up in a thriller from the makers of Keeping Up Appearances, Prime Suspect, and Shipwrecked.
A synopsis has been released and the series looks to be everything you’d expect from a classic mystery classic.
“After a number of murders, seven strangers arrive at a remote island to the sing of secluded serenity. Only they don’t know each other: they are strangers from different walks of life, with few commonalities, but with one thing in common – they were among the 32 people declared dead in And Then There Were None in 1934. All look like they have died by sudden strangulation. Alone and isolated, they find out things about themselves and each other that they never imagined. Will there be a murderer at sea? Or something they never imagined could happen?”
Although the first teaser-trailer is certainly intriguing, the filmmakers are keen to reassure viewers that this will not be a compilation of Agatha Christie adaptations.
“Its very much very different than some of the other Agatha Christie adaptations we’ve seen out there and audiences are going to be very surprised,” said Richard Rayner. “It’s actually quite different in terms of its own DNA to other Agatha Christie adaptations, as well as very, very different to any other British television production.”
There are further details available in the teaser-trailer which you can watch above.
