Daniel Craig to star in Rian Johnson-directed homicide thriller Knives Out

It appears like Daniel Craig and Rian Johnson are attempting to squeeze in an authentic film venture earlier than getting again to James Bond and Star Wars, respectively—Deadline experiences that the 2 are teaming up for a homicide thriller movie known as Knives Out.

Impressed by the works of Agatha Christie, Knives Out is a “modern-day homicide thriller within the traditional whodunit type,” with Craig starring as a Poirot-like detective. Johnson is writing and directing the movie, and co-producing along with his longtime filmmaking companion Ram Bergman. Collectively, the duo has made Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper, and a little-known indie movie known as The Final Jedi.
