It’s going to be several years before Rian Johnson’s new Star Wars trilogy takes shape, but fans of the filmmaker should be thrilled to learn that he’ll be directing another original feature in the meantime. It’s called Knives Out, and it’s described as a murder mystery in the vein of classic Agatha Christie stories, starring Daniel Craig as the detective investigating said murder.
If we’re lucky, every few years we’re treated to a will-they-or-won’t-they love story that sparks our imagination and warms our hearts. Ross and Rachel from Friends. Jim and Pam from The Office. Daniel and Barbara from Bond 25. Yes, these are classic, iconic love stories, where two people who are destined to be together must nevertheless fight through a series of unfortunate events before going public with their mutual love and affection. Which is all a complicated and jokey way of saying, c’mon, Daniel Craig and Barbara Broccoli, we know y’all are going to make Bond 25 happen, so just do it already!
