Jamie Lee Curtis is getting her "Knives Out" after the horrors of "Halloween."

The actress is joining the star-studded cast of Rian Johnson's next project, the murder mystery "Knives Out." She'll star alongside Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, and Ana de Armas.

The movie is a modern-day whodunit murder mystery, much in the same tone as Johnson's "Brick" and "Looper." It is the director's first project since "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and production is set to begin in November.

Johnson is an Agatha Christie superfan and has been trying to figure out how to make his own locked door mansion murder mystery for a decade. He finally wrote a contemporary version this past summer.

Curtis's role remains unknown, though Craig is rumored to play a detective investigating the main case.

The actress has gotten great reviews for reprising the role of Laurie Strode in the new "Halloween," four decades after originating it in the John Carpenter classic.
