Jamie Lee Curtis, The Queen Herself, Joins Rian Johnson’s KNIVES OUT

Jeez, it’s like this movie might be totally amazing or something.

We didn’t need the new Halloween to know that Jamie Lee Curtis is a living legend, but hey, it doesn’t hurt. The film has been a huge success, Curtis is now front and center, ready to join whatever movie is lucky enough to have her.

And it looks like one of those movies will by Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, a modern whodunnit that already has one of the coolest casts in recent memory: Daniel Craig, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, even Don Johnson, gang. Now we can add Jamie Lee Curtis to that amazing mix.

As with much of the film, we don’t know anything about who Curtis will be playing. Craig will be a detective on some kind of murder case, but other than that all we really have to go on is this cast and Johnson’s pedigree. But really, in what world is that not enough to get folks excited?

Knives Out begins production in November. We cannot wait.
