Chris Evans Joins Daniel Craig in Rian Johnson’s Murder Mystery ‘Knives Out’

Chris Evans will be joining Daniel Craig in Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Roles are still unclear, but considering both Evans and Craig are high-profile actors, they may be the leads what could become a star-studded ensemble.

Knives Out made a splash at the Toronto International Film Festival where MRC bought the world rights to the highly anticipated film. The vague elevator pitch is that Knives Out is a modern-day murder mystery in a classic ‘whodunit’ fashion.

The project is considered highly anticipated and the casting of both James Bond and Captain America has raised the status of the project.

Plots are still under wraps and will likely shoot this year, which means Craig will film before taking on the James Bond mantle once more and Evans’ just wrapped Avengers 4 and has time before his Apple series, Defending Jacob.

What do you think of the Knives Out casting thus far? Let us know in the comments below.
