Nick and Audrey Now Work as Full-Time Detectives
The film takes place four years after its predecessor and shows the Spitzes working as full-time detectives and having their own agency. While the first film was loosely inspired by Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile, the sequel will be an adaptation of her other famous work, Murder on the Orient Express.
The official synopsis of the film reads, “Four years after solving their first murder mystery, Nick and Audrey Spitz are now full-time detectives struggling to get their private eye agency off the ground when they’re invited to celebrate the wedding of their friend the Maharaja (Adeel Akhtar) on his private island.”
“But trouble follows the Spitzes again when the groom is kidnapped for ransom soon after the festivities begin — making each glamorous guest, family member, and the bride herself a suspect.”
“Murder Mystery 2 sends Nick and Audrey Spitz on a high-stakes case that finally gives them everything they’ve ever dreamed of: a shot at their detective agency finally becoming successful…and their long-awaited trip to Paris,” it reads further.
Several New Actors Have Joined the Cast in the Sequel
Apart from Aniston and Sandler, Adeel Akhtar will be repairing his role as Maharajah in Murder Mystery 2. The film will also feature some new cast members, including John Kani, Jodie Turner-Smith, Mark Strong, Enrique Arce, Mélanie Laurent, Annie Mumolo, Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), Kuhoo Verma, and Zurin Villanueva.
The film is written by James Vanderbilt, who also serves as a producer along with Aniston and Sandler. Joseph Vecsey, Judit Maull, and Jonathan Loughran serve as co-producers, and Charlize Theron, Tim Herlihy, Barry Bernardi, Julie Goldstein, Lucas Smith, Kevin Grady, and Beth Kono act as executive producers.
