Jamie Lee Curtis is joining Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Lakeith Stanfield in director Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Curtis just starred in director David Gordon Green’s record-breaking “Halloween” sequel, which has grossed $87.2 million domestically since its opening last weekend.

“Knives Out” is 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.”

Ram Bergman will produce “Knives Out” under Johnson and Bergman’s newly-formed production shingle.

Bergman has collaborated with Johnson on all of his feature films. Johnson will write and direct the MRC film. Production is set to begin in November.

Michael Shannon and Don Johnson will also star.

Curtis’ other recent credits include “Veronica Mars,” “Spare Parts” and “You Again.” She is also known for her roles in “A Fish Called Wanda,” “Trading Places” and “Freaky Friday.”

She earned two Golden Globes for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for “Anything But Love” and won Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for “True Lies.”

Curtis is represented by CAA and PMK BNC.
