Ever since the announcement of Knives Out 2 and 3 has hit the news, viewers have been on their toes to get more details on the plot, cast, and set. In 2019, Rian Johnson introduced us to his murder-mystery franchise, Knives Out, and received critical and commercial success. The arresting and mysterious drama, set against a vintage backdrop gave us a sweet yet mind-twisting experience. It starred Daniel Craig as the quirky detective, summoned to investigate the curious death of a renowned crime novel author, Harlan Thrombey, portrayed by the late Christopher Plummer. Everyone in the author’s family, played by a star-studded cast- Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and more, were the prime suspects. As the story proceeded, its thrill and suspense, mixed with elements of fun, kept us by the edge of our seats throughout.
Receiving such a positive response from the audience and critics at a global level convinced Rian to continue with detective Benoit Blanc’s adventures. In the beginning of 2021, the director announced his plans for Knives Out 2 and 3, set to release on Netflix. Following the news, the productions shared the names of the next a-list cast who’d be joining the upcoming installment. With Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monae, and Leslie Odom Jr.,it looks like Knives Out 2 will also get to show off an impressive batch of actors.

While the plot is still unknown, director Rian Johnson has shared the first picture from the movie sets. He posted a beautiful view of Greece and revealed that the filming of Knives Out 2 has finally kicked off. This is surely a huge change from the previous location of the first film that took place in New England. The gorgeous backdrop of the picturesque Greek Town only heightens our curiosity regarding Craig’s character. Did detective Blanc earn an international recognition after his previous case in Knives Out that drove him to Europe? Or is he on a vacation that clashes with a new mystery? Now that the productions have started, we are hoping for the movie to hit the screens by early 2022.
