Agatha Christie fanatics (not that we know any) may be getting a reprieve if news that the British company that owns rights to the Miss Marple franchise hasn't signed off on a deal for Jennifer Garner to star in a new movie as a younger, hipper, more "Alias"-y Jane Marple turn out to be credible. On Tuesday, news broke that Garner had been tapped to play Marple, but a Marple who instead of being an elderly spinster with a talent for sleuthing, is a 30-something version of the character with questionable resemblance to Christie's original. Deadline is reporting, however, that Chorion -- the company that owns the rights to the Marple franchise -- has not yet agreed to the deal and that the concept has been met with "general scorn" in Britain.
