Not your fa­ther’s lit­tle old lady

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Weird­est cast­ing news of the year. Jen­nifer Garner, who is not any­one’s idea of a lit­tle old lady, is to play Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s in­domitable sleuth, in a new film for Walt Dis­ney. This writer has al­ways been hos­tile to those pedants who ob­ject to any changes from source ma­te­rial in film adap­ta­tions. But this re­ally is an odd one. Be­ing an el­derly English lady was, surely, Miss Marple’s USP. You may as well turn Bat­man into a to­bac­conist.

Sep­a­rated at birth?
