Once again, Craig’s Benoit Blanc will be trying to solve a mystery featuring a large cast of suspects. Craig is the only character from the first film returning for the sequel.

Dave Bautista Knives Out 2

Knives Out is a film built on a foundation of cinematic pleasures. Its witty, twisted script. Rian Johnson’s quietly stylish direction. Production and costume design that make you want to redecorate and replace your entire wardrobe. But at the top of that heap is the cast. Daniel Craig’s private detective Benoit Blanc found himself surrounded by a murderer’s row of suspects, each and every one of them played by an actor that you (you meaning “everyone reading this sentence”) like to watch onscreen. It was an ensemble of gems, each performer an immediate crowd-pleaser.

This is not lost on Dave Bautista, who was recently announced as joining the cast of Knives Out 2, which will see the return of Johnson and Craig, but the introduction of a wholly new supporting cast. Bautista shrugged off the “former professional wrestler” stigma with his hilarious work in Guardians of the Galaxy, and he’s shown himself to be a hungry, curious, and adventurous actor since then, turning in memorable performances in films like Spectre and Blade Runner 2049. Joining the sequel to a film that utilized a such a powerful ensemble feels like the next step, and he is well-aware of the pressure.

The Knives Out 2 cast is growing seemingly daily, and each new bit of casting is more exciting than the next. So far, Edward Norton and Dave Bautista have joined the Rian Johnson-directed sequel that brings back Daniel Craig‘s master sleuth Benoit Blanc. Now, Janelle Monae has come on board as well. Like the previous two casting announcements, we don’t know who Monae is playing, but it’s safe to assume the sequel will once again assemble a big cast of characters and make them all suspects in a murder.
