'Thursday Murder Club' starring Helen Mirren, Pierce Brosnan, Ben Kingsley

Amblin's film adaptation of Richard Osman's novel „The Trustee Murder Club” is finally taking shape, with „Harry Potter” and „Home Alone” filmmaker Chris Columbus set to direct.

Helen Mirren, Pierce Brosnan and Ben Kingsley star in three of the four main roles in the project.

The book, released in 2020, tells the story of four septuagenarian friends who live in a retirement community and solve cold cases for fun. When a shady property developer is found dead, the four find themselves in the middle of their first live crime spree.

The book's publishing rights were sold in the biggest debut novel deal of a decade. Amblin Partners acquired worldwide rights to the film after a competitive bid that attracted interest from 14 studios.

It was a strong year for Amblin, with “Masters of the Air” series launching with more viewers in its opening weekend than any Apple TV+ series had in its first season, according to the streamer.
