Knives Out premiered in 2019 and was one of the most entertaining movies of the year. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed the first film, is back to write and direct the two Netflix movies.
Below, we shared everything you need to know about Knives Out 2, including the release date, cast, trailer, and more.
Knives Out 2 release date
Netflix has not announced the release date for Knives Out 2 yet. Production on Knives Out 2 begins on June 28, 2021, according to the report from Deadline. Filming will take place in Greece.
Because we know when the movie is being filmed, we have an idea when we could see the movie on Netflix. There’s no way we’ll see Knives Out 2 in 2021, but there’s a good chance we could see the sequel sometime in 2022.
Based on Netflix’s recent history of saving some of its biggest movies and shows until the holiday season, I think there’s a good chance we could see Knives Out 2 on Netflix in November or December 2022. It’s the perfect movie to compete with all the other major titles coming out around that time and steal lots of eyeballs and headlines.
There’s a chance we could see Knives Out 2 in the summer as like a major blockbuster release for Netflix. I don’t think that will be the cast. A 2022 holiday release seems more likely, but we can’t rule out an earlier release in 2022 right now.
We’ll let you know when Knives Out 2 is coming to Netflix when we find out!
Knives Out 2 cast
Knives Out had a huge cast with huge stars, so the expectation is that Knives Out 2 will have a huge cast with a bunch of big-name actors and actresses.
Daniel Craig is back as Benoit Blanc in Knives Out 2. Craig was the only confirmed cast when the Netflix deal was announced.
It’s since been confirmed by Deadline that Dave Bautista, who stars in Netflix’s Army of the Dead and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Draz, has been cast in Knives Out 2. It’s unclear what Bautista’s role in the film will be.
Deadline also reported that Edward Norton has joined the cast of Knives Out 2!
Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monae, and Leslie Odom, Jr. have also joined the cast for the sequel.
Kate Hudson will also be in Knives Out 2, as well. Florence Pugh is rumored to be involved in the sequel.
It’s unclear if any of the cast of the original film would be back for the sequel.
Knives Out 2 plot synopsis
We have no idea what Knives Out 2 is about except that Craig is back as Benoit Blanc. There will be a mystery of some kind to solve. The story also appears to be set in Europe.
Netflix has not shared the plot synopsis for the film. We’ll share that with you as soon as we find out.
Knives Out 2 trailer
Netflix has not released the trailer for Knives Out 2 yet. With such a big acquisition, Netflix will likely share a trailer for Knives Out 2 as soon as possible.
