"Knives Out (Rian Johnson, 20??)"


  

          

My nigga Rian is doing this before the new Star Wars trilogy.

Good.

Now I can see another Rian film without manbaby tears.

https://deadline.com/2018/09/daniel-craig-rian-johnson-knives-out-james-bond-25-star-wars-the-last-jedi-toronto-film-festival-auction-1202456539/

EXCLUSIVE: In a move that will surely swing some of the focus from awards season launches to the acquisitions market at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival, U.S. and foreign distributors will be bidding for Knives Out, a contemporary murder mystery that will star Daniel Craig as a detective assigned to solve the crime, with Rian Johnson directing.

Craig has committed to star in November, while his James Bond 25 film regroups following the exit of director Danny Boyle. Johnson, who wrote the script and is producing with partner Ram Bergman, will make the movie before setting off to direct a new trilogy in the Star Wars universe. Knives Out will be the first film he’ll direct since 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which grossed over $1.3 billion.

The film is best described as a modern day murder mystery in the classic whodunit style, infused with Johnson’s original voice that informed films from Brick to Looper.

The film came out of nowhere before major buyers received the script last night and gave every indication this will be a fevered auction. Longtime collaborators Johnson and Bergman confirmed for Deadline the details and sales plans for Knives Out, which they’ll finance through a new company they’ve hatched but haven’t yet named.

CAA Media Finance will represent the film’s North American distribution rights, and FilmNation will handle international rights, with CAA and FilmNation co-repping China. Those parties brokered in similar fashion at Cannes the deals for 355, the international spy thriller that Simon Kinberg will direct with Jessica Chastain producing and starring with Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Bingbing Fan and Lupita Nyong’o. Unlike 355, Knives Out is already in prep with a completed script. The film has a star as its fulcrum, and the filmmakers will move quickly to set the six to eight major roles around Craig.

Knives Out will replicate 355 in another respect: it will give offshore independent distributors the kind of star-driven A-list film they usually don’t get a shot at these days. Every territory on 355 was sold during Cannes in a flurry of about 30 different deals closed in less than a week. The expectation is that Knives Out will provoke a similar buyer reaction. Deals will be brokered at Toronto, and Johnson and Bergman will be there to meet with buyers.


Johnson told Deadline he has been an Agatha Christie nut since his teens, sparking to her richly drawn characters and the twists and turns that drove her whodunits. For a decade, he has been framing in his mind how he would make his own murder mystery, and over the summer he scripted his contemporary version of the locked door mansion murder mystery.

Boyle’s abrupt exit from Bond 25 gave Johnson and Bergman an opening to pursue Craig, if he was up for squeezing in a movie before returning to his 007 franchise. When Craig sparked to the script and signed on, a hot package came together, just in time for the Toronto market. Besides the Bond films, both Johnson and Bergman followed Craig’s career closely since his strong turns that included Road to Perdition, Munich, Layer Cake, Defiance and Logan Lucky. They’ve seen his stage turns, and Johnson has met Craig socially several times. It made for a quick and easy alliance on Knives Out.

“I have been a huge fan and always wanted to work with him and as I worked on the script, trying to get it right, Ram and I were wringing our hands over who could be the detective,” Johnson said. “Then, serendipitously, we heard Daniel might have a small window, and it worked out. He’s an actor of extraordinary range, and we are looking forward to the fun of finding that modern detective, and collaborating with Daniel on creating a new Poirot.”


Disney
Johnson said that while he enjoys playing in the studio sandbox with Star Wars, he and Bergman liked the prospect of being part of this entrepreneurial independent process where they launch a new company with a film they own, with the help of CAA Media Finance and FilmNation, whose principal Glen Basner worked with them on the films Brick, The Brothers Bloom, and Johnson’s breakout, Looper.

“Glen sold all of Rian’s movies with the exception of Star Wars,” Bergman said. “We went to Cannes with Looper and watched it sell very well. This is a different time in the business, but we are excited to come in as the financiers and producers. Our priority is to find the best distributor in each territory, and to spend time with the buyers figuring out what’s best for the film.”

The auction will inject excitement into the first days of Toronto alongside acquisition titles playing the festival, and the auction provides a boost for the increasingly fragile foreign indie distribution ecosystem.

This will never happen again, sadly. He could make a transformative drama the quality of which makes Citizen Kane pale in comparison, and the Internet would say, "Not bad considering what a piece of fucking shit Last Jedi was."

It'll be fun to see him bring a budget and all the things he's learned and experienced since. Also nice to see him get out from under Star Wars one last time for the forseeable future; I don't really blame him for what was bad about Last Jedi, Disney made a bad decision continuing the Skywalker story in the first place and Abrams didn't set him up to succeed at all, he had the right idea and just made a lot of wrong choices. Unshackled from IP he should get back to being a G.

Rian snarking n shitting on SW fans on twitter didn't really help things. even fans woulda been more forgiving of the director if he didn't come across like a shitberg online.

but tell me, which SW fans DIDN'T want to see a continuation of the Skywalker story? that story IS Star Wars. somehow making it all about these newbies who no one really gives a shit about, two movies deep, was the mistake. they had tons of story to use for the legacy characters, but cos George's hand is still in the pot so to speak, and Disney wanna save money anywhere they can, they killed off the two male leads and turned Leia into a woke Mary Poppins.

pretty sure the fans were quite vocal about THAT part of it, and the horrible handling of the OG characters. they really chopped down the leading men of this franchise: killing Han unceremoniously and turning Luke into a salty old curmudgeon who drinks booby milk and tries to kill his nephew cos of a bad fucking dream. take that, toxic male patriarchy!
but everything else u said is spot-on.
Jar Jar Abrams had zero plan on rolling out a full trilogy.
he basically went and remade Ep4, made it a boring-ass soft reboot and hoped no one would notice. then he left Rian holding a shit-covered bag of pretzels and convinced him the fans would think it was chocolate.

Rian's films are generally dope, but this whole directors getting into it with fans on twitter thing is a big mistake and a BAD trend. dude put himself in the firing line with that shit. but he's also attached to this piece of shit movie called TLJ. so whatever fan backlash he gets, is well deserved.

can we mention real quick how much Mark Hamill detests TLJ? i feel like that gets glossed over in these discussions. what do the above posters, who call SW fans 'man-babies' and use other SJW buzzwords, think about that? is Mark, a veteran of the franchise, and not to mention the fucking STAR, a man-baby too?

Looking back at most of your posts, you get super salty very quickly if people don't like something you do. Like we're all going to clown your opinion on what you like.

As far as Mark Hamill take a look at this:https://ew.com/movies/2017/12/27/mark-hamill-star-wars-the-last-jedi-luke-skywalker/

BTW when did this become a Star Wars post? Me saying that I'm happy to see a Rian film without all the whining Star Wars fans was not really me wanting to discuss SW. And your two posts are exactly why.

The Last Jedi is almost 2 years old now dude. That's like me railing on a certain comic book movie now. It's done. It's over.

You started this very thread being defensive.

Like, you dick ride RJ like no one I've ever seen (can't believe you still call him your "nigga" in 2019)...but just enjoy his flicks man. You started this shit in your thread.

You told dude the movie is two years old and to get over it, yet you're still linking up articles and shit?


Do you have like a database of links to use when you want to fight over your "nigga"?



>BTW when did this become a Star Wars post?

When you mentioned it lol.

Jesus, how did you bamboozle folks around here into thinking you're some kind of objective voice to be trusted on film, when you can't even be the slightest bit objective about your own bias and shit?


Me saying that I'm

Then why oh why did you bring up Star Wars in the thread?

Why can't you discuss the film without bringing up Star Wars if you don't want to discuss Star Wars?

And why can't you discuss Rian's work without calling him your "nigga" on some straight-up weirdo shit?

>
>The Last Jedi is almost 2 years old now dude. That's like me

Then why won't you let it die? Why bring it up in this thread?

You're the one who won't let it drop. People liked the Last Jedi. Some people didn't. Some people thought it was a mixed bag.


Why can't you just accept some people don't share your opinion?

Calling RJ his nigga is somehow bad in 2019 but calling him a dick rider is okay in 2019? If you don't get the full context of the word I don't know what to tell you mayne.

Look inward if you're trying to be the PC police. Nigga can be a term of endearment but dick rider is 100% homophobic.

bwood can defend himself but come on now. He hasn't bamboozled anybody. Some of us value his opinion and that's okay.

How about we just discuss movies and cut out all this extra shit

why are u looking back at 'most of my posts', my dude? i didn't scrounge n search all bwood posts to psychoanalyse you, i just read the OP in this one...where u clearly mentioned SW and invoked the term "manbaby", obviously referencing SW fans. then u n Frank had a smug exchange about it.

>As far as Mark Hamill take a look at
>this:https://ew.com/movies/2017/12/27/mark-hamill-star-wars-the-last-jedi-luke-skywalker/

buddy, i'm trying realllly hard not to call you a shill right now, so i'll keep it civil. here's a video called "All 50+ Times Hamill Tried To Subtly Warn Us About Last Jedi/Force Awakens/Disney" >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKlo-plLJZI&t=874s. u seriously think he made the retraction that u linked up of his own free will? lol. he's an employee after all, part of a product that he's expected to sell. Hamill got MAD respect from the fan community specifically because he wasn't afraid to call it as he saw it. which he did almost relentlessly for a long time. that 'apology' reads stiff and forced and u know it, so i'm not sure what point ur trying to make there. the fucking STAR of the entire SW franchise is telling u they fucked up his character and that Rian doesn't understand SW on a fundamental level. u trying to bend reality cos of a forced apology is weak, dude.

>BTW when did this become a Star Wars post? Me saying that I'm
>happy to see a Rian film without all the whining Star Wars
>fans was not really me wanting to discuss SW. And your two
>posts are exactly why.

i honestly could give a fuck what u want, bud. and i'm not exactly upset at you as a human being, cos u got a job to do and shitting on films in ur reviews isn't exactly gonna get u invited to hang with ur n-word Rian, so i get where ur comin from. but again, u invoked SW in the OP. and if we're being real? Knives Out specifically contains an internet troll-like character that's based on Rian's experiences after releasing TLJ >>> https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/rian-johnson-talks-toxic-fandom-and-star-wars-210140258.html. he's literally written it into the film lol. and i wouldn't expect a Rian SW trilogy. that shit's deader than Han and Luke. Iger's put all SW films on hiatus. u rekn Iger did that cos the Disney SW films have been so well received? haven't both TFA and TLJ made a mint at the B.O? why would he pull the plug on future SW projects u rekn? Rian knows this and his answer is vague for a reason.

>The Last Jedi is almost 2 years old now dude. That's like me
>railing on a certain comic book movie now. It's done. It's
>over.

then stop fucking talking about it. stop talking *down* to fandom with this "manbaby" bullshit. real fans got real gripes with how this whole new trilogy has been handled, cos there are heaps of *reasons*. Lucas himself was recently been quoted as not being a fan, either. pretty much everyone from Kathleen Kennedy to JJ to Rian have fucked up. read more articles man, there's new shit comin out every single day about how massive a fuck up this Disney SW era has been. best believe TROS is gonna be even worse. the problem is u seem like a good dude, but ur job demands u to nut-hug to keep getting access to screenings and, based on ur reply below, to the artists themselves. i'd like to believe Rian's a good dude too, and i've dug all his movies, but he kinda shit the bed with TLJ.

The cast looks great but the trailer didn't sell me on the movie. Johnson has a great track record which gives me hope.

Very much a movie about 2019. Very cleverly written with a cast that's clearly having fun.

This is going to be a real crowd pleaser.

Got to meet and talk with Rian again last night. Such a nice person.

Michael Shannon is a fun dude to drink with.

Craig's accent was fricking great. It might have been the way he played it but it reminded me a bit of Ladykillers which i am now going to rewatch. It was very fricking good.

Clever and fun. Wonderful ensemble that were clearly enjoying themselves. Twists that made me laugh when I didn't get them and made me feel smart when I figured them out.

I had sort of forgotten that Chris Evans could be fun and charming. If forced to complain about something, I thought that Jamie Lee Curtis was sort of underused. She's one of the first characters we're introduced to and I got pretty excited, but she gets a bit lost in the shuffle afterward. But it's not like I sat around waiting for her to do more.

anytime i have to rely on a synopsis near the end of the film, it's probably not my
type of movie. it was entertaining enough but, felt like a wasted free movie ticket.

27. "LOVED it"
In response to Reply # 0


          

This, Parasite and Jo Jo Rabbit (and of course Endgame) are my favorites of 2019.

It felt like the perfect movie to make after such a big yet-divisive movie like TLJ. The cast looked like they all had a blast. I bet the outtakes are just as hilarious as what made it on the screen.

In such a terrific, A-level ensemble cast, the relatively unknown lead pulled her weight just fine.

I dug the way it unfolded. I guessed the big reveal about halfway through the movie, but that was based more on the casting than the plot. Still, just watching the all the twists and turns was a joy.

I'd love to see Toni Collette as best supporting actress, but really I don't think this will get any Oscar noms EXCEPT best screenplay. I wouldn't be surprised by that at all.

Chris Evans' character kept reminding me of Kieran Culkin in Succession.

This is definitely one to catch on the big screen. The audience at my theater applauded at the end. I love when that happens.

it introduced. Just so well-crafted.
