The star-studded cast of Rian Johnson’s . That Plummer was able to come in at the last minute to replace Kevin Spacey and still be considered one of the best aspects of the film speaks volumes to what he can bring to any production.
Many viewers are excited to see what Johnson does with his upcoming Star Wars trilogy, but Knives Out is shaping up to be a very compelling offering in the interim. Johnson is well-known for thinking outside the box and defying genre conventions with his work, so it’ll be interesting to see what his approach is here. The sales pitch is it’s a modern-day whodunit in the vein of Agatha Christie, but there’s probably a lot more to it than meets the eye. And there’s apparently no telling who else might join the cast. Johnson fans are likely awaiting news about frequent collaborator Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s possible involvement in Knives Out.
