It’s so thoughtful of Rian Johnson and the Knives Out sequel team to help promote the latest issue of Empire. How so? They have added Jessica Yu Li Henwick to the cast, perfectly tying in with one of the talented types we’re profiling in the current issue.

Admittedly, the two are entirely unconnected, but we’ll take it regardless. Henwick becomes just the very latest cast addition for a film that has been adding to its ensemble at a rate of knots.

Daniel Craig is back as crafty, drawling ‘tec Benoit Blanc, investigating another crime with a wide field of suspects. This time around, he’ll be in warmer climes, as Johnson and co. are shooting in Greece this summer. And around him will be a cast that includes Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Leslie Odom, Jr., Edward Norton and Kate Hudson.

It’s all part of the big deal that Johnson, Craig and producer Ram Bergman struck with Netflix for two sequels to the 2019 comedy mystery. We can expect to start figuring out who actually dunnit next year.
