Anyone bored of being drip-feed casting announcements for Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ yet? Doesn’t matter as the latest name to join the cast has been revealed as ‘WandaVision’ antagonist Kathryn Hahn.
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.
Hahn was last seen in the Marvel/Disney+ series ‘WandaVision in which she became a bit of a whirlwind scene-stealer.
