After Dave Bautista and Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn joins Knives Out sequel
The pre-production of the Rian Johnson film is set to begin this year in Greece
Kathryn Hahn, who was last seen in WandaVision, becomes the latest actor to join the burgeoning cast of Rian Johnson's sequel to his much-celebrated Knives Out.
The actor joins fellow newcomers Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, and Janelle Monae in the sequel to the 2019 whodunnit.
Daniel Craig, who essayed the role of master sleuth Benoit Blanc in the first movie, will reprise the part in the next instalment that is bankrolled by Netflix. The streaming platform recently acquired the rights to develop two follow-ups to Knives Out in a reported $450 million deal.
Johnson, who returns to direct, is also producing the film with Ram Bergman under their T-Street production banner. The plot details are being kept under wraps.
Along with Daniel Craig, Knives Out featured a massive ensemble cast including Hollywood A-listers such as Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, and Christopher Plummer. The film enjoyed both critical and commercial success, with critics hailing it as one of the best murder mysteries to come out in recent times.
The pre-production of the new film is set to begin this year in Greece.
Meanwhile, Hahn will next star in Hotel Transylvania: Transformania and The Shrink Next Door, co-starring Will Ferrell and Paul Rudd.
