With the big announcement that Netflix had stumped up a healthy chunk of change for Rian Johnson‘s second and third Knives Out movies, now we’re starting to learn who will appear alongside the returning Daniel Craig. According to Deadline, Dave Bautista is the first name to make a deal.
Craig, of course, will be back as ace, laidback detective Benoit Blanc, who is likely to be the only recurring main character in the films, solving a new mystery each time.
Johnson is looking to kick of shooting at the end of June in Greece, and this first casting announcement means Craig and Bautista sharing a film for the first time since Spectre. The latter actor will be back on screen in Army Of The Dead, which is hitting Netflix on 21 May.
