Acorn Media has announced that they have acquired the North American rights to And Then There Were None, the critically-acclaimed new adaptation of the best-selling crime novel of all-time. And Then There Were None’s impressive ensemble features Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Hobbit trilogy), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Anna Maxwell Martin (Midwinter of the Spirit, The Bletchley Circle), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter films, Sleepy Hollow), Douglas Booth (Great Expectations), Maeve Dermody (Serangoon Road), Burn Gorman (TURN: Washington’s Spies, Torchwood), Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Jane Eyre), and Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones). They will release the miniseries on DVD and Blu-ray on April 19, 2016, while their streaming service, Acorn TV will add the miniseries in September 2016.
As the world teeters on the brink of World War II, 10 strangers are invited to isolated Soldier Island. Among them are young secretary Vera Claythorne (Maeve Dermody), soldier Philip Lombard (Aidan Turner), General John MacArthur (Sam Neill), spinster Emily Brent (Miranda Richardson), and Judge Lawrence Wargrave (Charles Dance). With seemingly nothing in common, the guests wonder who their mysterious host may be. But the ominous reason for their visit soon becomes clear… and by the end of the night, the first of them is dead.
The 2-disc DVD and Blu-ray release on April 19, 2016 will include a bonus behind-the-scenes featurette, a featurette about Agatha Christie, and an interview with writer Sarah Phelps ($34.99 each).
