For the past few weeks, he has been filming a new crime detective, Ghosts in Venice.

And Kenneth Branagh reincarnated as Hercule Poirot again on Monday, when he was pictured on set in the Italian city in his period suit.

The 62-year-old British actor brought back his characters’ signature mustache for scenes he was known to have worn before in 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express and 2022’s Death on the Nile.

Kenneth Branagh wore his Hercule Poirot character’s signature mustache on Monday as he continued filming The Haunting in Venice.

Kenneth wore a double-breasted navy blue coat over his matching suit, which was paired with a crisp white shirt and red tie.

The actor and director added a Homburg hat and leather gloves while carrying his detective character’s cane.

During the scenes, he walked around Venice and then acted out some of them on a rustic balcony.

While the Oscar winner also spent some time behind the camera when he was filmed looking through the lens.

The film is Kenneth’s third film about Ecule Poirot and is an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s 1969 novel Halloween Party set in post-war Venice on All Saints’ Eve.

The story follows Poirot, now retired and living in self-imposed exile, before being lured into solving another mystery.

Filming began at London’s Pinewood Studios in November before moving to Venice, Italy in the past few weeks, where 20th Century Studios has set a September 2023 release date.

This came after Kenneth’s co-star Jamie admitted that he found his signature mustache “intimidating”.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, he said: “I felt very insecure and inadequate all the time because his mustache was incredible.”

“(His facial hair) is the best in film history as Poirot, while mine was a small attempt.”

Jamie said it was also “very different” to play alongside an Oscar winner, even though he had previously directed.
