Rian Johnson&#8217;s <i>Knives Out</i> Gets Distributor, Release Date

Writer-director Rian Johnson’s original murder mystery Knives Out now has a distributor and release date. Lionsgate is set to distribute the film worldwide, and has set a U.S. release date of Nov. 27, 2019, per Deadline.

Knives Out started production in November, and features an all-star cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Lakeith Stanfield, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette and Christopher Plummer.

While the plot of Knives Out is still being kept under wraps, Johnson described the film as “his contemporary version of the locked-door mansion murder mystery” while shopping the project at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, with Craig attached to star. Global rights to Knives Out ended up being acquired at the festival by independent studio Media Rights Capital, which is now partnering with Lionsgate on the film’s release.

Knives Out is now set for a U.S. release on Nov. 27, 2019, right in time for Thanksgiving season.
