A new day, a new cast addition for Knives Out 2. The last couple days have seen Dave Bautista and Edward Norton join the highly-anticipated sequel to the hit 2019 film which will see Daniel Craig return as Detective Benoit Blanc. Now, Janelle Monáe has been confirmed to join the cast. Like Bautista and Norton, Monáe's part remains undisclosed. Rian Johnson will once again write and direct. As part of the $450 million deal with Netflix, Johnson, Craig, and producer Ram Bergman will return for a third installment after this upcoming sequel.
The only confirmed element of the plot in general can be deduced from the production location with principal photography beginning this summer in Greece. Meaning, most likely the story will take place there, similar to how the first film took place in Massachusetts and was filmed there on-location. Stay tuned!
