Suchet considers bringing Poirot to the stage...
Suchet has revealed to What’s on Stage
that he might take Poirot to the stage. He hasn’t decided whether it’s going to happen or which story to be but is in ‘debate’ with himself on the subject.
He says it would have to be ‘a huge story with a fantastic set’ with himself in the leading role and worthwhile doing. “I don’t want to be in a country-house drama as Poirot on stage” he tells.
In another interview in The Sun
he promises to keep high production values on the remaining six TV episodes of Poirot in spite of low budgets in the industry.
“I’d probably say no if they asked me to film the final six on a limited budget”... ... “Being an associate producer has allowed me that voice. I have the right to say to a director, “That’s not good enough” he says.
Suchet, hoping to film the remaining six within the next 18 months, also reveals that - unofficially - new Poirot scripts may be in development already.
With thanks to Pascale!
