How do you follow making a "Star Wars" movie? Direct a film starring James Bond, Captain America, and the Queen of Horror, naturally.

That's exactly what "The Last Jedi" helmer Rian Johnson is doing with his latest project, "Knives Out," and now, the star-studded flick has a release date. Deadline reports that the film is set to open on November 27, 2019, which is the day before Thanksgiving.

Though little is known about the murder mystery so far, Johnson has said that it's inspired by the work of acclaimed author Agatha Christie, and it centers around a detective trying to solve a murder. Daniel Craig plays the lead, and the rest of the ridiculously impressive cast includes (deep breath) Chris EvansJamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Lakeith Stanfield, Toni Collette, Ana de Armas, Christopher Plummer, Katherine Langford, and Don Johnson. Phew.

Representatives for Lionsgate, which is distributing the film, are understandably excited for the project. One exec told Deadline that "Knives Out" "redefines the detective movie genre in a cool and original way" and is a "big, crowd-pleasing" flick.

Sounds perfect to us. We'll be ready to take it in next November.
