Daniel Craig becomes Detective Benoit Blanc again. Now another cast member of the “Knives Out” sequel has been determined.

Netflix will shoot two sequels to the hit movie “Knives Out” (2019). It was already known that Daniel Craig (53) would slip back into his role as detective Benoit Blanc. Now a new member has joined the cast: Dave Bautista (52, “Army of the Dead”) will play in the sequel. “Did 007 really believe that he could push me off a train and that was the end?” Jokes the US actor in an Instagram story and confirms the cast message from “Deadline”.
