David Tennant Picture

David Tennant ("Doctor Who"), Jonathan Pryce ("The Two Popes"), Naomi Ackie ("Blink Twice"), Daniel Mays ("Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget") and Henry Lloyd-Hughes ("Killing Eve") are set to star in the upcoming Amblin and Netflix movie "The Thursday Murder Club" based on Richard Osman's 2020 novel of the same name.. The film is written and directed by Chris Columbus ("Home Alone", "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone").

The movie follows a group of friends in a retirement home who gather to solve murders for fun, but find themselves caught in a real case. The four members of the club will be played by Helen Mirren (ex-spy Elizabeth), Ben Kinsgley (ex-psychiatrist Ibrahim), Pierce Brosnan (former union activist Ron) and Celia Imrie (ex-nurse Joyce).

Filming begins later this month. Jennifer Todd and Chris Columbus will produce. Executive producers include Holly Bario, Jeb Brody, Eleanor Columbus and Jo Burn.

Osman had this to say about the project: "There's some great names and some more names coming as well. I think this is the greatest British cast assembled since the [Harry Potter] movies."

The film is the latest to be produced as part of Netflix and Amblin's film partnership, which also includes the upcoming "Carry-On" starring Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton.
