It seems like Daniel Craig and Rian Johnson try to squeeze in an authentic film undertaking sooner than getting again to James Bond and Star Wars, respectively—Deadline experiences that the two are teaming up for a murder mystery movie referred to as Knives Out.

Inspired by means of the works of Agatha Christie, Knives Out is a “modern-day murder mystery in the vintage whodunit taste,” with Craig starring as a Poirot-like detective. Johnson is writing and directing the movie, and co-producing along with his longtime filmmaking spouse Ram Bergman. Together, the duo has made Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper, and a little-known indie movie referred to as The Last Jedi.
