ACE Entertainment Films Adds to Miranda Green Mystery Franchise


ACE Entertainment Films is producing two new titles for the Miranda Green Mystery franchise: Murder at the Embassy and The Mystery of the Golden Spear.

Mischa Barton (Neighbours, The OC), who starred in the initial 2023 film Invitation to a Murder, returns as Miranda Green, a florist-turned-private detective who loves Agatha Christie’s stories. Murder at the Embassy is set for delivery in the first quarter of 2025.

The Mystery of the Golden Spear, set in the South African savannah, is set to begin shooting in January 2025, with delivery in summer 2025.

Invitation to a Murder is available in over 100 countries worldwide and is streaming on top platforms, including Apple TV+ in the U.S.

“We have been thrilled by the global response to Invitation to a Murder,” said Marielle Zuccarelli, president of global sales at ACE Entertainment Films. “Inspired by the works of Agatha Christie and the whodunit genre, we have set out to create a mystery franchise that is timeless while also appealing to contemporary audiences. With Mischa as the perfect embodiment of Miranda, we are confident we have something that will continue to grow and win over fans for a very long time.”

“I’m really looking forward to returning to the role of Miranda Green in the next installment in the Miranda Green franchise,” Barton said. “The script that the team has crafted is exceptionally fun and witty. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of this captivating journey once again.”
