Pierce Brosnan, Helen Mirren, and Ben Kingsley to star in The Thursday Murders Club film adaptation from director Chris Columbus.

Pierce Brosnan (The Last Rifleman) will star alongside Helen Mirren (The Miracle Club) and Ben Kingsley (Sexy Beast) in a film adaptation of popular ‘cosy crime’ series The Thursday Murders Club from writer/director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone).

The film follows a group of older 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.

Columbus is adapting from writer and Pointless co-host Richard Osman’s novels of the same name. Osman confirmed the news on his podcast, The Rest is Entertainment, today. The rights to the series were picked up by Steven Spielberg’s production house Amblin Entertainment in 2020. The Thursday Murders Club has sold more than 10 million copies and led to several sequel books.

Filming is set to begin in the UK at the end of June and run through to September.
