The 62-year-old is not only starring in the lead role in the movie but is, once again, directing it too.
A Haunting in Venice is the sequel to 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express and last year’s Death on the Nile – adaptations of Agatha Christie novels which were also directed by the Oscar winner.
He has been photographed with co-stars Tina Fey and Riccardo Scamarcio as they filmed scenes for the movie, which is expected to hit cinemas this September.
Belfast director Sir Kenneth effortlessly transformed into the detective, sporting his iconic long moustache and wearing a navy pinstripe three-piece suit as he was seen preparing to board a gondola.
His co-stars looked equally fitting for the period film, with Tina, 52, wearing a striking emerald green coat and skirt and Riccardo, 43, wearing a grey suit underneath a long black coat.

It is not yet known who Tina and Riccardo will be playing in the movie, but they are believed to be taking on lead roles.
Sir Kenneth then took to them water to film solo scenes, adding a navy coat and homburg hat to his ensemble as he was seen in the wooden police gondola as he toured Venice’s canal.
The film is based on Agatha Christie’s 1969 novel Hallowe’en Party, which is set in a post-World War II Venice.

Sir Kenneth will also be reunited with child star Jude Hill, who won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Performer for his breakout role in Belfast.
Production got underway at Pinewood Studios just outside of London last year.
Deadline has described the movie as ‘a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot.’
Sir Kenneth said of the movie: ‘This is a fantastic development of the character Hercule Poirot, as well as the Agatha Christie franchise.
‘Based on a complex, little known tale of mystery set at Halloween in a pictorially ravishing city, it is an amazing opportunity for us, as filmmakers, and we are relishing the chance to deliver something truly spine-chilling for our loyal movie audiences.’
