(SPOT.ph) Netflix is coming up with a stellar cast for their follow-ups to the 2019 whodunnit hit Knives Out. Daniel Craig is reprising his role as master detective Benoit Blanc along with OG director and writer Rian Johnson. And to make things even more interesting in this neo-noir universe, two huge names are coming on board the sequel: Dave Bautista (a.k.a. deadpan Drax) and Edward Norton (a.k.a. unnamed narrator/Tyler Durden), reports Deadline.

At first glance, the 2019 flick may look like Wes Anderson and Alfred Hitchcock had a baby, but trust us, this story definitely comes into its own. And with a cast that consists of Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Toni Collette, Ana de Armas, and more playing a very dysfunctional family trying to figure out who killed their patriarch—in his large mansion that is to be inherited, of course—how could it not?

Everything We Know So Far About the Knives Out Movies on Netflix:

News that Netflix bought the rights to continue the Knives Out universe broke in March. The deal reportedly cost upwards of U.S. $400 million, reported Deadline. That's a huge sum of money, and seeing as the entertainment company is spending around half that same amount of money on spy thriller The Gray Man with the Russo Brothers, we definitely have our hopes up for Knives Out 2.

Netflix is planning two new installments for the franchise. Details on Norton and Bautista's characters are under wraps as of writing but we can be sure the movie will center around Blanc surrounded by a huge cast of suspects. Production is slated to start in June in Greece.
