Michael Shannon and Lakeith Stanfield To Join Rian Johnson's KNIVES OUT
Director Rian Johnson continues to build an impressive ensemble cast for his new film project, Knives Out. Michael Shannon and Lakeith Stanfield are both going to join the project, which also stars Daniel Craig and Chris Evans.
There aren’t many details on the project, but it has been described as a modern-day murder mystery in the classic Agatha Christie whodunit style, infused with Johnson’s original voice that informed films from Brick to Looper.
Craig will play a detective in the story who is assigned to solve a crime. We have no idea who any of the other actors are playing.
I’m a big fan of Johnson and his original film projects such as Brick, The Brothers Bloom, and Looper, and I’m excited to see what he’s got planned for this next movie. After he’s done with Knives Out, he’ll jump back into developing his new Star Wars trilogy.
