In 2019, Knives Out, directed by Rian Johnson, came as a present for all those who love a sound, mind-twisting suspense thriller. Knives Out revolves around the story of the death of Harlan Thrombey. He was a famous novelist who was found dead under mysterious circumstances, and everyone in his dysfunctional family was a suspect. The onus of finding the killer fell on the dynamic Detective Benoit Blanc (played by Daniel Craig). He rummaged through clues and several lies to put the killer behind bars.
Rian Johnson has another classic whodunit in store for us. A sequel to Knives Out is afoot! Not much information is available in the public domain regarding the sequel, but hey, we did some snooping, and here’s all that we know!
WE’LL SEE SOME NEW FACES IN KNIVES OUT 2
The first installment had an incredible star cast. Chris Evans played the witty but shady Ransom Drysdale, Daniel Craig played the renowned Detective Benoit Blanc, and Ana de Armas played Marta Cabrera, the nurse. For the sequel, too, Johnson has an impeccable star cast lined up.
Kate Hudson, famous for her role in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Bride Wars, is all set to appear in the sequel. Next on the confirmed list of actors/actresses, we have Leslie Odom Jr. His role in the musical Hamilton won him a Tony award and a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
Edward Norton, known for his role in Fight Club, is also likely to be a part of this film. Another known fact who we might spot in Knives Out 2 is that of Dave Bautista. He is widely known for his role as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy; he recently appeared in Zack Snyder‘s Army of The Dead.
Janelle Monae and Kathryn Hahn (of Wandavision) are likely to be a part of the sequel, but Netflix is yet to release an official confirmation. Well, we know one thing for sure, Daniel Craig is stepping into the shoes of Benoit Blanc, again, and the list of suspects is long!
When and where can we watch it?
Lionsgate approved the sequel in February 2020, but the shooting couldn’t commence due to the pandemic. Netflix now owns the movie, and the shooting will probably begin by 28th June 2021. So make sure you have a Netflix subscription in 2022 so that you don’t miss out on some nail-biting thrill.
What’s going to happen in Knives Out 2?
We all enjoyed the Thrombey family drama, didn’t we? Sadly, it’s time we bid goodbye to them. Jamie Lee Curtis, who played the role of Linda Drysdale, recently took to Instagram to clear the air regarding the family’s return. In a humorous post, she said that the Thrombeys are in Family counseling, and they have been advised to stay away from Benoit Blanc for their own good. After what happened last time, we say it’s the best decision for the Thrombey family.
Instead of sticking to the old location, Blanc is likely to be seen in Greece for this movie. Netflix is yet to release the complete cast list; let’s hope we get to see more talented artists coming together for the sequel. Another rumor that’s going around is, there might be a THIRD INSTALLMENT, and Netflix already has signed it! Well, only time can prove it right or wrong; until then, let’s keep our eyes and ears open for more updates on the sequel.
That’s all, folks! Do you have any more theories about the sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
