Leslie Odom Jr. Joins "Knives Out 2"


The line-up keeps growing! It's been confirmed that actor/singer Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, One Night in Miami) has enjoyed the already stacked ensemble for Knives Out 2. Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautist,a and Edward Norton were previously announced to join Daniel Craig's lead character Detective Benoit Blanc who returns from the first film to solve another murder mystery. Like the others, Odom's role has been kept a mystery.

Rian Johnson is once again writing and directing the sequel. It is the first of two sequels that he has signed on to helm at Netflix in the lucrative $450 million deal the streaming service made with Johnson, Craig, and producer Ram Bergman. The plot is being kept under wraps but is expected to begin production this summer in Greece. Stay tuned!
