New Miss Marple - WTF???

Okay, file this under WTF:

"Agatha Christie's elderly sleuth Miss Marple is moving into the Mouse House
and will go under the knife to hit the bigscreen
as a younger detective in the form of Jennifer Garner.

Thesp, who is currently lensing "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" for Disney, will play Jane Marple in the adaptation that Disney hopes will be a female version of
Warner Bros.' Sherlock Holmes franchise."
(via Variety)


Why bother making this Miss Marple, then? Just to cash in on the name recognition??



  1. OMG - that is so wrong! Miss Marple is NOT Jennifer Garner! NO WAY! I agree - why bother making this Miss Marple if not for the name recognition! Pathetic!

  2. I don't suppose this is some kind of horrible early April Fools prank?

  3. As soon as you said Disney....I felt this cloud of doom come into the room. :(


  4. Of course it's just to cash in. Stupid is what it is. What's wrong with the old spinster I ask? Perhaps it's Miss Marple in her early days yuk.
