Miss Marple, the elderly heroine of a dozen Agatha Christie novels, is set to return to the big screen. The twelve original Marple novels began with "The Thirteen Problems," the first chapter of which was released as a short story in 1927 and the novel itself published in 1930. The character, Jane Marple, has since appeared in film, television, stage and on the radio. Disney will modernize Miss Marple rather than go for a period approach.
