The starry cast on the new big-screen adaptation of The Thursday Murder Club has grown with several new additions joining the project, that is directed by Chris Columbus.

Filming is based at Shepperton Studios, where Netflix has taken eight of the stages that were recently completed in the studio’s expansion, along with their existing 14 leased on the original site.

The feature adaptation is the latest project to come from the Netflix/Amblin film partnership, that includes the forthcoming Carry-On with Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton.

Chris Columbus also produces alongside Jennifer Todd; the executive producers are Holly Bario, Jeb Brody, Eleanor Columbus, Jo Burn and Osman.
