Daniel Craig Will Star in Rian Johnson's Murder Mystery Knives Out.

Daniel Craig has teamed with director Rian Johnson for a new murder mystery titled Knives Out. The project came out of nowhere and will be financed via a new production company that Johnson has formed with his longtime producing partner Ram Bergman.

The project will be hitting the market in search of a distributor at the Toronto International Film Festival this week and it's expected to be a very competitive auction.

The project came out of nowhere because the timing just happened to work out. Rian Johnson penned the script and wanted Daniel Craig for the lead role, who will be a detective trying to solve a murder in a contemporary setting.
