Knives Out trio Chris Evans, Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman are collaborating on a new movie project.
According to Deadline, Evans is circling the role of Gene Kelly – the legendary actor who gave us one of Hollywood's most iconic sequences as Don Lockwood in Singin' in the Rain.
The story itself, conceived by Evans, centres on a 12-year-old boy working on the MGM lot in 1952, where he conjures up an imagined friendship with Kelly.
Given the calibre of talent involved, you'd assume studios would be clamouring to land their untitled movie, but at the time of writing none are attached.
Switching back to the treacherous universe of Knives Out, upcoming sequel star Dave Bautista previously revealed why he thinks the next entry is superior to the original.
"I'm always afraid to say that because I don't want anybody to get offended saying that we're going to be better, but I really do think this. I think the characters are just so much more colourful. I think people are really going to dig this. The characters are just so great. They're so different.
"Everybody's cast so well. I was working with a couple of my castmates and was mesmerised by their performances and just how well they've adapted into these characters. I think the characters in this are even more quirky than the first one," he teased.
