Rian Johnson’s Knives Out marks the director’s return to the big screen after Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and is easily one of the most anticipated upcoming films. Now, we finally know when we will be able to witness the project as Lionsgate and MRC have sent out a press release announcing that the film will be released on Wednesday, November 27, 2019.
Details surrounding the film’s plot is being kept under wraps at this time but Johnson has enlisted an absolute insane cast, headlined by Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, and Jamie Lee Curtis. Rounding out the impressive cast are Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry To Bother You), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Don Johnson (Django Unchained), Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why”), and Academy Award winner Christopher Plummer (Beginners).
The press release described the film as “a modern take on the classic detective genre”
“We’re very excited to be in production on Knives Out and can’t wait to bring it to the big screen with great partners like MRC and Lionsgate,” said Johnson and Bergman. “MRC put their trust in us when they first partnered with us on this film and Lionsgate truly champions and empowers the artist to tell the story they want to tell so we couldn’t be in better hands.”
Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chairman Joe Drake also spoke about the project in the press release:
“Knives Out redefines the detective movie genre in a cool and original way. With a superstar filmmaker, an amazing ensemble cast and the perfect partner in MRC, we can hardly wait to bring this big, crowd-pleasing property to a global audience next Thanksgiving.”
Finally, MRC co-presidents of film Brye Adler and Jonathan Golfman spoke about how exciting it is to work with Johnson:
“We are very excited to partner with Lionsgate on Knives Out. The entire Lionsgate team was incredibly impressive and could not have been more passionate about the project,” said “We’re looking forward to working together to help bring Rian’s original and highly entertaining movie to the world.”
