Chris Evans Joins Daniel Craig for Rian Johnson Murder Mystery 'Knives Out'
Cap, meet 007.
Chris Evans just made headlines with his poignant goodbye post after finishing "Avengers 4" reshoots. He's made it clear he's out as Steve Rogers/Captain America. Meanwhile, Daniel Craig has also made it clear he's done as James Bond after "Bond 25."
Now -- both with one foot out of their most famous roles -- Evans and Craig are teaming up for "Knives Out." The murder mystery movie is being written and directed by "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson.
"Knives Out" plot details are still unknown at this point, but Deadline said it's understood to be a modern day "whodunit" murder mystery.
They added that "Knives Out" will likely film this year -- in what's left of it. If that happens, Daniel Craig will actually film this before "Bond 25," which is now being directed by Cary Fukunaga for a Valentine's Day 2020 release date.
Chris Evans only just finished filming "Avengers 4" -- he'll still be back for the press tour next year -- but he has grown no moss on the work front. It was recently announced that he'll star in and produce the upcoming Apple series "Defending Jacob."
