In the midst of the all the new films premiering this week, there’s news about a new movie that isn’t even in production yet. Deadline reported on a new project from Daniel Craig and Rian Johnson. The film is called ‘Knives Out‘ and is “Contemporary Murder Mystery”. It will star Craig as the detective trying to solve the case. The team is in Toronto this week seeking domestic and international distributors for the upcoming film.

Knives Out‘ will begin shooting in the late fall due the newly open schedule Craig now has. Johnson plans to make ‘Knives Out‘ before going back to Lucasfilm and beginning work in his new Star Wars trilogy. The film is said to be a very traditional Agatha Christie style story but set in modern times.

I love the work that Rian Johnson did with ‘The Last Jedi’, but i’m glad he is making time for this. I hope we get more auteur style filmmakers who can freely work within major IP franchises. Yet are still able to create their own smaller projects. Also, if his work on ‘Spectre’ vs. ‘Logan Lucky’ is any indication, It might be nice to have Daniel Craig stay away from 007 a little longer.
