Director Rian Johnson has cast Dave Bautista in Knives Out 2. He will join Daniel Craig, who is reprising his role as private detective Benoit Blanc.
Knives Out 2 is one of two sequels that Johnson will write, produce, and direct for Netflix. Johnson previously explained that Detective Blanc will have a whole new case to solve, and it will feature a whole new ensemble cast. Netflix paid $450 million for these next two movies!
There are no story details to share and there is no information on who Bautista will be playing. But, I’m sure that Johnson has a great character lined up for the actor, and as a fan of the actor, I can’t wait to see how Johnson is going to utilize him.
Bautista will also appearing in Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, and he is also going to start shooting James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as well.
