Rian Johnson starts putting together another impressive ensemble for Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc to be fingered on Netflix’s Knives out sequel. On the heels of Dave Bautista’s casting news, the murder mystery has added another big suspect in the form of Edward Norton.
Deadline has followed the breadcrumb trail to reveal that the Fight club and Moonrise Kingdom star will join a cast that will give the streaming giants a good price for their massive spend on the Knives out property.
Johnson is once again returning to the director’s chair and writing the script, having recently signed a $ 400 million bonus plus deal with Netflix for two sequels. Production of the first sequel will start later this summer.
