For those that haven’t seen the 2019 comedy/homicide thriller film Knives Out, please bookmark this text, cease every little thing you might be doing, watch it proper now, and are available again and skim this later. Seriously. It was a masterpiece. Back in March, we discovered that Netflix is producing not one, however two sequels to the movie, and it was one of many first indicators that 2021 was going to really prove OK. Now, the solid for Knives Out 2 is starting to be revealed, and is it doable that this film is much more star-studded and extremely solid than the unique?
The first film had a completely stacked solid, together with Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, LaKeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, and Christopher Plummer.
But Knives Out 2 got here to play. Writer/director Rian Johnson will probably be returning, which is good news, because it was his screenplay that made the primary movie so genius. And Daniel Craig will probably be again because the pompous and elusive Detective Benoit Blanc — a positive signal that each sequels will embrace extra thriller (and doubtless extra homicide).
But Knives Out 2 has much more surprises up its sleeve in terms of the solid. We’ve simply discovered that it’s going to star former WWE fighter Dave Bautista, who you’ll in all probability acknowledge as Drax the Destroyer from the MCU.
Three-time Oscar nominee Edward Norton has additionally signed on for the sequel.
What I’m personally most enthusiastic about is Janelle Monae, who’s an unimaginable singer, however has additionally crushed it as an actor in roles in Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Antebellum, and Homecoming.
But the information that’s prone to get everybody speaking is the truth that the unimaginable Kathryn Hahn has joined the Knives Out 2 solid.
Hahn has superb comedy chops (the waxing scene in Bad Moms Christmas makes me snort till I cry irrespective of what number of occasions I’ve seen it), however she’s extra just lately taken the world by storm together with her function as Agatha Harkness in WandaVision. She’s additionally chargeable for the chart-topping “Agatha All Along,” which is likely one of the greatest bops of the 12 months up to now.
The actually superb information is that manufacturing on Knives Out 2 hasn’t even began but. This solid record will in all probability proceed to develop, although it’s already completely unimaginable. Will the sequels find yourself even higher than the unique? It’s form of trying that method.
