The first Knives Out film caught the attention of audiences around the world when it assembled an all-star cast of talent for Rian Johnson’s mystery comedy film. The film’s cast included stars of old and new with Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collete, and Michael Shannon. Daniel Craig led the cast as detective extraordinaire, Benoit Blanc. A few weeks ago, Netflix purchased the franchise in a $400M+ deal that would ensure two more sequels. The first castings followed quickly on the project. Now, it seems that Outer Banks and Stranger Things star Madelyn Cline has joined the upcoming mystery thriller. It remains unknown who Cline will be playing. Of course, the plot continues to remain the biggest mystery now.
So far, it only seems like the story will find take place in Greece, as filming is planned there for the upcoming summer. The only thing we know is that Cline is joining an all-star cast that consists of Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, and Leslie Odom Jr. The film will be written and directed by Rian Johnson. He will produce the film alongside Ram Bergman. It is currently unknown if the franchise will stick to the “Knives” naming, as that was strongly connected to the iconic visual of the first film. Perhaps we can expect the sequel titled to stick to “Out” in some form or another.
