Following the success of the “Halloween” reboot released this week, where she reprised her role as Laurie Strode, Jamie Lee Curtis (“A Fish Called Wanda,” “Freaky Friday,” “Veronica Mars”) is set to join an all-star cast in Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out.”
The film is a classic murder mystery, set in the contemporary era, and will star Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, and Ana de Armas.
Craig will play a detective assigned to solve the mystery, who director Johnson described as inspired by Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot.
No details about Curtis’ character are known yet.
Johnson will write and direct, as well as produce with Ram Bergman. Production is set to begin in November 2018.
Curtis began her career in 1978, with the first “Halloween” movie. The remake has shattered previous box office records, grossing $91.8 million worldwide over its first weekend.
