Actress Jamie Lee Curtis explained that âthe film centers on a detective (Daniel Craig) investigating a murder when he comes across an eccentric, combative family.â She also noted the family gathering setting âturns bloody very quickly.

The titleÂ Knives OutÂ appears to be apt based on the description.
During Lionsgateâs presentation, Johnson revealed that he is a die-hard Agatha Christie fan and thatÂ Knives OutÂ was an attempt to take all the aspects he loved about the famed writer, âjam it into an all-star cast, give it a Hitchcock thriller, genre twist and set it in modern-day America.â
The all-star ensemble cast ofÂ Knives OutÂ includes Daniel Craig (Spectre), along withÂ Chris EvansÂ (Avengers: Infinity War),Â Ana de ArmasÂ (Blade Runner 2049), Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water), Lakeith Stanfield (Sorry To Bother You), Don Johnson (Book Club), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Christopher Plummer (Beginners), Katherine Langford (Love, Simon), Riki Lindhome (Kidding), Edi Patterson (The Last O.G.), RaĂșl Castillo (Atypical), and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween).
The film will be released on November 27.
