Jennifer Garner has signed on to star in the Disney’s just announced adaptation of MISS MARPLE. The project, which is based on the series of books from Agatha Christie, centers on the crime-solving adventures of Miss Jane Marple, a spinster with a sharp logical mind who acts as an amateur detective. In the original books, Miss Marple is an elderly woman not willing to sit around waiting for her end, but in the new Disney spin they said up front that they planned to remake her in her 30s. Enter Garner.
Garner, who was most recently seen in “Valentine’s Day” has”Arthur” and “Butter” both awaiting release, with Fox’s “The Bachelorette Party”, WB’s “Be With You” remake, and “Arranged” all in the pipeline.
