An new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None (aka. Ten Little Indians) is in the works, this time as a feature film at Disney’s 20th Century Studios.

Captain Marvel scribes Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel are set to pen the film which will be a standalone project, not connected to Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie film series.

Disney will reportedly keep the film’s pre-World War II period but offer a fresh take on the story of ten seemingly disparate individuals invited to an isolated island.

Cut off from the mainland, the house guests and servants are all accused of heinous crimes and are murdered one by one during the course of their stay. As their numbers dwindle and there’s no sign of anyone else on the island – suspicion and paranoia grows.

The book, first published in 1939 under a title with a racial slur that will not be printed here, set the flow for almost every slasher film ever made. It has sold more than 100 million copies in eight languages, making it one of the best-selling books of all time.

Shrapnel and Waterhouse  are currently doing production work on the G.I. Joe film Snake Eyes for Paramount.
