Wow, this is a cast list and a half. Toni Collette joins the ever-swelling cast list of Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, joining amongst others Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ana de Armas.
The pic from MRC is a modern-day murder mystery in the classic whodunit style, infused with Johnson’s original voice that informed films from “Brick” to “Looper.” Craig will star as a detective assigned to solve the crime. Details about Collette’s character remain unknown.
Collette received raves for her performance in A24’s thriller “Hereditary.” The decorated actress scored an Oscar nod for 1999’s “The Sixth Sense.” She also received a Golden Globe and an Emmy for her role in the TV series “United States of Tara.” Collette secured a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2006 for “Little Miss Sunshine,” as well as a Tony nomination for the musical “The Wild Party.”
