The Jojo Rabbit breakouts are already lining up their next projects. 

While Archie Yates has been tapped for the Home Alone reboot, now it's the turn of the lead in Taika Waititi's dark comedy — Jojo himself — Roman Griffin Davis. 

The 12-year-old Golden Globe nominee is to star alongside Keira Knightley in an upcoming Christmas film, The Hollywood Reporter understands.

The as-yet-untitled project is being produced by Matthew Vaughn's Marv Films, behind Rocketman and the Kingsman franchise, alongside Maven Pictures, set up by Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler.

Griffin Davis' mother, writer-director Camille Griffin, is set to direct the film from her own script. 

Knightley, most recently seen in political thriller Official Secrets, also has the all-star comedy Misbehaviour, set around the 1970 Miss World beauty pageant, coming up.
