Find out who is joining Daniel Craig

Rian Johnson’s crime novel franchise will soon reach its third installment with the upcoming production of “Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery,” taking its title from the U2 song. While plot details remain under wraps, Johnson recently announced the return of Detective Benoit Blanc, played by series mainstay Daniel Craig, in a 45-second teaser posted on X.

The original “Knives Out,” released in 2019, followed Blanc as he investigated the mysterious circumstances behind the death of mystery novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). The sequel to “Glass Onion” arrived as a Netflix original in 2022 and saw Blanc travel to the private island of eccentric billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) to solve an incredibly baffling murder.

“Knives Out” is known for its wide ensemble of characters, with previous cast members including Chris Evans, Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Hugh Grant and more. See below who is scheduled to join this latest chapter in the “Knives Out” film series.
