Ridley Scott is set to serve as producer on a remake of Murder on the Orient Express.

20th Century Fox has bought the rights to adapt one of Agatha Christie's most famous novels for a new big screen project.

Scott is just one of the producers that have been brought on board the project as Simon Kinberg and Mark Gordon are also set to work on the film.

The search is now on to find the writers to adapt the novel into a screenplay.

Murder on the Orient Express last came to the big screen in 1974 with Albert Finney in the central role of Poirot.

It has been a busy couple of years for Scott having brought Prometheus and The Counsellor to the big screen.

The director is currently working on Exodus - which tells the story of Moses.

Christian Bale is set to play Moses in the film, while Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley are all also on board.
