Kerry Washington Joins Daniel Craig in Netflix Sequel

Kerry Washington is joining the expanding cast for Rian Johnson‘s sequel movie Knives Out 3, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The actress joins previously confirmed castmembers Daniel Craig, Andrew Scott, Josh O’Connor and Cailee Spaeny in the project that counts Johnson and Ram Bergman as producers. Last week, writer-director Johnson revealed the movie’s title as Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery.

Netflix has announced that the third film will follow a new murder mystery in a yet-to-be-disclosed setting and will feature another colorful array of suspects catching the attention of returning detective Benoit Blanc (Craig). Last week, Johnson posted that the movie is set to begin production soon.

Washington stars opposite Delroy Lindo in the series Unprisoned and is set to lead the Tyler Perry-helmed World War II feature Six Triple Eight for Netflix. Her other recent credits include such movies as The School for Good and Evil and The Prom, along with the series Little Fires Everywhere.

The initial 2019 film Knives Out was released by Lionsgate and surpassed $310 million at the global box office. It featured an ensemble cast that included Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Plummer.
