Synopsis

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.

This is the latest film from director Rian Johnson. The project quickly came together in late 2018, after Bond 25 was delayed to 2020. With an opening in his schedule, Daniel Craig signed on to Knives Out and Johnson recruited a star-studded cast from there. Production began in October 2018 and wrapped a couple months later.
