The cast of the first sequel to Knives Out looks pretty great

In late March, Netflix acquired the rights to two Knives Out suites in a blockbuster d 'worth over $ 400 million, and the cast of the first sequel quickly promises to be as epic as the original film.

We got an initial idea of ​​the new cast on Monday when Deadline announced that Dave Bautista would join the cast for the film. (He talked about his role on Polygons Tasha Robinson in an interview posted on Tuesday.) Then Deadline received another report on Tuesday saying that Ed Norton had also signed up. The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday that musician and actress Janelle Monae is joining the cast. And on Thursday, Deadline reported that Kathryn Hahn, who you may know for her outstanding role at WandaVision, will also appear in the upcoming film Knives Out. They will all appear alongside Daniel Craig, who will take on his delicacyThe role of detective Benoit Blanc in the two suites. Director Rian Johnson will also return to direct the two new films. I saw the Original Knives Out for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. Much of my enjoyment with the film was thanks to its fantastic cast, which included Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, LaKeith Stanfield, and Christopher Plummer.

The details of the plot for the new films have yet to be announced, but given the A-list talent who is already reuniting for the first sequel, I guess Johnson has something good in the works. Production of the film will begin this summer in Greece,

according to the deadline
