Melbourne: Jennifer Garner has landed the title character in Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming big-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie’s ‘Miss Marple’ mystery novel series.

According to IGN, the character - immortalized in countless films and TV shows over the past 50 years - is traditionally an elderly woman, but Disney’s reboot will revolve around a much younger Marple cracking crimes.
