Outspoken actor, Dave Bautista has been cast to star opposite Daniel Craig in the follow-up to the highly anticipated ‘Knives Out’.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but it is highly likely another bunch of A-list cast will be part of the whodunnit murder mystery. It’s unclear if any other stars from the original ensemble will be returning.
The first ‘Knives Out’ was a commercial and critical success earning more than $300 million at the global box office. It starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Toni Collette and Ana de Armas — and centred on a fabulously wealthy family and takes place after their patriarch, the renowned author Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), dies on the evening of his 85th birthday.
This wouldn’t be the first time Craig and Bautista have worked together, the pair appeared together in the 2015 James Bond film ‘Spectre.’ Bautista will be appearing in the Netflix feature from Zack Snyder ‘Army of the Dead’. His other upcoming work includes Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ remake, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ and ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’
