According to sources, the Marvel staple’s character nor the sequel’s plot have been revealed. The only confirmed pieces of information are that Daniel Craig will be reprising his role as Benoit Blanc to solve another mystery with a large group of suspects and that production is scheduled to start this summer in Greece.
Knives Out 2 will mark Bautista and Craig’s second project together following 2015’s Spectre, while Johnson will return to write and direct sequel, as well as produce alongside his partner Ram Bergman.
Earlier this April, it was reported that Netflix finalized a deal to purchase the rights for two Knives Out sequels that are worth a whopping $450 million USD. As the first film went on to earn $311.4 million USD on only a $40 million USD budget, streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon and Apple supposedly went through an intense bidding war for the rights.
Stay tuned for a trailer and release date for Knives Out 2.
