Like most of the roles in the film, next to nothing is known about who Plummer is playing.

More on the Knives Out cast below.

knives out filming

Here’s some quick news regarding two very different productions. While taking a break from a galaxy far, far away, Rian Johnson is making the star-studded mystery movie Knives Out. Shooting has just begun on the film, as evident from a tweet from Johnson himself. And that’s not all! Hereditary‘s Toni Collette has just joined the cast.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, word comes that the Call of Duty movie, adapted from the video game series, might start production as soon as 2019 (which isn’t that far away, folks).

Toni Collette Hereditary interview

Toni Collette was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in The Sixth Sense, and now she’s back in the horror genre with Hereditary, a film so scary it makes The Sixth Sense feel like an episode of Sesame Street. Hereditary is deeply disturbing, an unnerving, visceral piece of filmmaking that will freak you out and leave you profoundly shaken by the time it ends. Collette delivers an absolutely unreal performance in the film, playing a matriarch whose family becomes haunted when her character’s mother dies. She’s physical and raw and wounded and grieving and furious – it’s arguably the best work of her entire career.

You can read our full review of the film here, but I recently sat down with Collette at the film’s press junket in Beverly Hills to talk about whether this script intimidated her, what it was like working with first-time director Ari Aster, the scariest thing about this film for her, and more. Enjoy our full Toni Collette Hereditary interview below. Read More »
