Kenneth Branagh is directing the Fox film.

Dutch actor Marwan Kenzari is on to his third big Hollywood movie this year.

The actor, who appeared in MGM's Ben-Hur and had a role in Universal's The Mummy, has joined the all-star cast of 20th Century Fox's Murder on the Orient Express.

Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Johnny Depp, Michael Pena, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr. and Judi Dench are among those taking a ride on the Orient Express, with Branagh also directing.

The story centers on a murder onboard the famous train and introduces Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), who must solve the case while being surrounded by duplicitous passengers.

Kenzari will play the French conductor of the train.

The actor stars opposite Noomi Rapace and Glenn Close in What Happened to Monday, which will air on Netflix, and appears with Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac in Terry George's The Promise, which premiered in Toronto.

He is repped by ICM Partners and Janey van Ierland at Nummer19 Films in Holland.
