Helen Mirren and Pierce Brosnan have joined the cast of The Thursday Murder Club, starring alongside Ben Kingsley in the new film, which is based on British TV host and producer Richard Osman‘s novel of the same name. Chris Columbus (‘Home Alone’, ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’) will write and direct the file adaptation.

The Thursday Murder Club follows a group of senior friends in a retirement home, who gather to solve murders for fun, but find themselves caught in a real case — ex-spy Elizabeth (Mirren), ex-psychiatrist Ibrahim (Kingsley) and former union activist Ron (Brosnan). Negotiations for an actress to play the fourth member of the group, Joyce, are ongoing.

Osman is best known as a British TV presenter on BBC game show ‘Pointless’ and ‘Richard Osman’s House of Games’. The Thursday Murder Club is his debut novel and the first in his ‘Thursday Murder Club’ book series. Production on the film is set to begin in the United Kingdom in June, running through September.
