Miss Marple being brought to the silver screen

Jenifer Garner seems a bit young for the Miss Marple role, but I love Agatha Christie so I'll hope for the best.

"Garner's Marple, however, comes with a key update: the character will better befit its fetching lead actress: She'll be a younger gumshoe with, presumably, better wardrobe and a lot more sex appeal."

Looks like they will be changing the character. Will that affect anything? Never read the book(s).

Will it affect anything??!!! Hahahahahahahahahah
Miss Marple is usually a 60+ woman. She is such a good detective because as an old woman she is completely overlooked and people say and do things around her that they wouldn't if they didn't think she was a sweet doddering old fool (none of those things are what she is) .

So yes, the changes they will be making to accomodate Jennifer Garner in the role are going to take a lot of re-writing and the show will have to say "loosely based on the Agatha Christie Miss Marple novels"


Still, BBC has a young Sherlock Holmes and his friend Watson set in modern London. Bad as that sounds, it is actually quite good. So, I'll try to keep an open mind here.
