It looks like filming has kicked off on the first Knives Out sequel over in Greece. The film is once again written and directed by the genius that is Rian Johnson and will bring Daniel Craig’s super-sleuth Benoit Blanc back to the screen to solve another mystery.
Johnson shared a photo (of a camera) on the sun-drenched set in Greece, a somewhat different location to the autumnal Boston seen in the first movie. The planned sequel will feature a new cast, and an impressive one at that. They are: Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline, and Jessica Henwick.
The new movie will be released onto Netflix presumably sometime next year. A third film in the series is also planned.
