The delivery of names that are joining Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ sequel may have slowed but they are still trickling in. Kate Hudson has become the latest to join the cast.
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. Daniel Craig will return as detective Benoit Blanc. 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.
Johnson aims to begin filming this June in Greece.
Hudson’s upcoming projects include Ana Lily Amirpour’s mystery thriller ‘Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon’ and the adaptation of the novel Shriver, in which she stars opposite Michael Shannon.
