The actor, 62, took to the city of water in a police waterboat while reprising the detective role Hercule Poirot, which he has famously sported before in 2017’s Murder On the Orient Express and 2022’s Death On The Nile. 

Crowds of extras filled the city’s streets too, all dressed in period costumes as the film went back in time. 

It’s Kenneth’s third Hecule Poirot movie, and is being adapted from Agatha Christie’s 1969 novel Hallowe’en Party, set in post-World War II Venice on All Hallows Eve.

The story follows Poirot who is now retired and living in self-imposed exile, before he is lured in to solve yet another mystery.

It began filming at London’s Pinewood Studios in November, before moving to location work in Venice, Italy, over the last few weeks.

While the project from 20th Century Studios has a September 2023 release date.

Kenneth will star alongside Tina in the film, as well as Jamie Dornan, Michelle Yeoh, Kyle Allen, Camille Cottin, Jude Hill, Ali Khan, Emma Laird, Kelly Reilly and Riccardo Scamarcio.

It comes after Kenneth’s co-star Jamie admitted that he found his signature moustache ‘intimidating’.

Speaking on The Graham Norton show he said: ‘I felt very insecure and inferior the whole time because his moustache was unbelievable’.

‘[His facial hair is] the best in film history as Poirot, while mine was a wee attempt at one.’

Jamie said it was also ‘very different’ acting alongside the Oscar winner, after only previously being directed by him.
