Acclaimed actor Michael Shannon is in talks to join the ensemble cast of “Brick” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson’s next feature “Knives Out” for MRC.
The story is described as a modern-day murder mystery in the classic Agatha Christie whodunit style. It’s not yet known what type of character Shannon will play.
Shannon joins Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Lakeith Stanfield in the film which Johnson is writing and directing and will produce with his producing partner Ram Bergman.
The plan is to shoot in November before Craig jumps back into filming his next outing as James Bond. No studio is attached to distribute at this time.
