Theatre and screen actress Jennifer Garner will portray the role of Miss Marple in a Disney film version based on the books made famous by Agatha Christie, according to Deadline.com.

Garner was most recently seen on Broadway in Cyrano de Bergerac and will be starring on screen in the upcoming remake of "Arthur."
