Jennifer Garner - Jennifer Garner To Be Miss Marple

Jennifer Garner will play sleuth Miss Marple in a new movie.

The 'Alias' actress will take on the role - previously made famous by stars including Gracie Fields, Angela Lansbury and Joan Hickson - in a Disney version of the traditional Agatha Christie novels.

Although traditionally played by an older woman, a new concept sees her re-invented for a younger generation, with 'Twin Peaks' screenwriter Mark Frost scripting the project.

According to Deadline.com 38-year-old Jennifer will produce the movie with Juliana Janes, who has previously worked as her assistant on films including '13 Going on 30' and 'Elektra'.

In the 1980 movie 'The Mirror Crack'd' starring Angela Lansbury, an all star cast including Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis took part.

It is not known who else will appear in Jennifer's film.

She will next appear alongside Russell Brand in his version of classic Dudley Moore movie 'Arthur' and in comedy 'Butter' with Hugh Jackman and Ashley Greene.
