Richard E. Grant and Tom Ellis are the latest additions to Netflix‘s The Thursday Murder Club film, based on the beloved novel series by Richard Osman.

The newly-released cast, alongside Geoff Bell (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Top Boy), Paul Freeman (Tokyo Trial, Raiders of the Lost Ark), Sarah Niles (Ted Lasso, F1), and Ingrid Oliver (Last Christmas, Doctor Who) join a star-studded lineup including Helen Mirren, Pierce Brosnan, Ben Kingsley, Celia Imrie, David Tennant, Jonathan Pryce, Naomi Ackie, Daniel Mays and Henry Lloyd-Hughes.

The film, directed and written by Chris Columbus of Harry Potter fame, follows a group of friends in a retirement home who gather to solve murders for fun, but find themselves caught in a real case. The four members of the club are played by Mirren (ex-spy Elizabeth), Kingsley (ex-psychiatrist Ibrahim) Brosnan (former union activist Ron) and Imrie (ex-nurse Joyce).

Osman’s book was released to critical acclaim and has fast become a classic among British crime thrillers.

It is the latest project to be produced as part of Netflix and Amblin’s film partnership, which also includes the upcoming Carry-On, starring Jason Bateman and Taron Egerton.

Columbus and Jennifer Todd serve as producers on The Thursday Murder Club, while Holly Bario, Jeb Brody, Eleanor Columbus, Jo Burn and author Osman are executive producers.
