I’m running out of ways to tell you Rian Johnson’s Knives Out is going to have an amazing cast. It was already a powerhouse back when it was just Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Michael Shannon. Since then, it’s picked up Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Lakeith Stanfield and Toni Collette.
That is nuts. But Knives Out isn’t even done yet. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Plummer is now in negotiations to join the film. Good grief.
Info about the movie is still pretty limited. It’s some kind of murder mystery in which Daniel Craig plays a detective. As such, we have no idea who Plummer will be in the film. Probably an elderly person.
Stay tuned for future casting notices, like say next week when the film reveals a role for Barack Obama or somehow resurrects Humphrey Bogart.
