Cast members travelling in a small train for Kenneth Branagh's new adaptation of Agatha Christie's Inspector Poirot whodunnit Murder on the Orient Express experienced motion sickness, the director and actor has revealed..
As reported by Digital Spy, LED screens were mounted outside the train windows to give the impression that the train was moving through Yugoslavia rather than south east England. Apparently the cast came down with motion sickness when they began shooting.
"All these people were passengers on a train that travelled for a mile up and down the leafy lanes of Surrey pretending to be the former Yugoslavia," Branagh revealed, speaking at a preview of the new movie.
"It was curious that on the first day we used our gimballed train sets and our LED screens with footage that we'd gone to great trouble to shoot for the various environments - the lowlands and then the Alps, etc -(and) after a day, people really did feel quite sick," said Branagh.
The film stars Branagh as Poirot, along with Daisy Ridley, Tom Bateman, Lucy Boynton, Olivia Colman, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Derek Jacobi, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Johnny Depp.
Murder on the Orient Express will be released in November.
