Look, a new movie by an incredible director does not always mean it’s going to be a slam dunk. A new movie with an incredible cast from an incredible director does not always mean that either. But when these factors are in place, you still gotta get excited.
Which is exactly how I feel about Knives Out, Rian Johnson’s upcoming non-Star Wars movie. So far, the cast has Daniel Craig and Chris Evans. That’s huge. Now, it looks like Lakeith Stanfield is joining the fray as well.
We don’t know much about the film at all, except that it’s going to be some sort of murder mystery. According to Deadline, Stanfield and Craig are likely to play detectives in the film. Works for me! Stanfield in particular offers an interesting voice to projects, and I can’t wait to see what he does with this.
Honestly, I just can’t wait for Knives Out, period. I’m all for Rian Johnson making more Star Wars films, but I’m also very happy he still gets to do projects like this in the meantime. The film is expected to shoot later this year, so hopefully we don’t have to wait too long.
