As previously reported (see update below), “The Thursday Murder Club” cast has now been officially announced. According to Deadline, Pierce Brosnan, Helen Mirren and Ben Kingsley are set to star in The Thursday Murder Club, with Chris Columbus attached to write and direct. The film is an adaptation of British TV host and producer Richard Osman‘s novel of the same name. Osman confirmed the news on his podcast, The Rest is Entertainment, today. Steven Spielberg‘s production house, Amblin Entertainment, is making it. The story follows a group of geriatric friends in a retirement home who gather to solve murders for fun, but find themselves caught in a real case. Mirren will play ex-spy Elizabeth, Kingsley will play ex-psychiatrist Ibrahim and Brosnan will play former union activist Ron. Negotiations for an actress to play the fourth member of the group, Joyce, are ongoing. Filming will begin in the UK at the end of June and run through to September, said Osman. Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire and Harry Potter director Columbus is directing and adapting Osman’s best-selling book for the big screen.
