Disney have chosen to proceed with Death On The Nile despite Armie Hammer scandal.
The film, which was originally set to release back in 2019, has finally got its new release date for February 2022.
A new trailer has just dropped which doesn’t fail to acknowledge Hammer’s presence.
You can watch the trailer below on YouTube:
“It’s been almost a year since multiple women accused Hammer of emotional abuse, manipulation and coercion; in April, a woman who gave her name only as Effie accused Hammer of rape.”
Hammer denied the allegations, but was dropped by his agents at William Morris and withdrew from a number of movie and TV projects,” as stated by The Hollywood Reporter.
According to sources “Disney considered several options when the accusations broke regarding Hammer“. However “ultimately, the studio decided to leave the film as is, and proceed with a full-fledged theatrical release”.
The film releases on Feburaury 11.
