Jamie Lee Curtis has made a heartwarming request of her Knives Out co-star Chris Evans.

Responding to Evans’s tweet in which he addressed his possible return to Marvel as Steve Rogers (aka Captain America), Curtis wrote: “Can I play your mother? In every film you do?”

The Scream actor previously starred opposite Evans in the 2019 blockbuster Knives Out, in which she portrayed Linda Drysdale – mother to Evans’s character Ransom Drysdale.

Evans appeared to be enthusiastic about the idea. In his reply to Curtis, the actor joked: “It’s going in the contracts x.”

Fans have shared their support for Curtis’s casting proposal, which has since received over 16,000 likes.

One user wrote, “I’d like to co-sign this if there’s a petition going”, while another added: “Oooh play Sarah Rogers? Steve Rogers mum? I’d be down 3000% for that. You playing in any movie together with Chris would be gold!”

“Really seems like everyone involved in Knives Out had THE MOST FUN working on it and it shows,” said a third person.

Lionsgate, the company behind the murder mystery film, also responded: “yes please.”

In February last year, it was announced that the light-hearted whodunnit is getting a sequel

The follow-up toKnives Out will see Daniel Craig’s drawling detective Benoit Blanc attempt to solve a new standalone mystery.
