Daniel Craig Cast in Rian Johnson's New Thriller

Daniel Craig Picture
As the 25th Bond film ended up being delayed following the departure of director Danny Boyle, the franchise's current star Daniel Craig has signed on to star in "Knives out", a new film written and directed by Rian Johnson ("Star Wars: The Last Jedi").

Described as a "modern day murder mystery" in the vein of Johnson's 2005 crime drama "Brick", the thriller will star Craig as a detective working to solve a case. The mystery is said to resemble Agatha Christie's classic whodunit style, with Craig's character designed as a modern-day Poirot.

Johnson stated the following regarding Craig's casting:
"I have been a huge fan [of Craig] and always wanted to work with him and as I worked on the script, trying to get it right, Ram [Bergman, co-producer] and I were wringing our hands over who could be the detective"
