Rian Johnson‘s next installment in the Knives Out franchise isn’t done adding to its stacked cast as Jeremy Renner and Mila Kunis join Daniel Craig in Netflix’s "Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery". 

They join new cast members Josh O’Connor, Kerry Washington, Renner, Glen Close, Cailee Spaeny, and Andrew Scott with Craig set to return as world-renowned detective Benoit Blanc and Rian Johnson back as director. 

Johnson penned the script and will produce through his T-Street along with producing partner Ram Bergman.

Plot details are unknown, but Johnson promises the third installment in the murder mystery franchise will be Blanc’s “most dangerous case yet.” 

The first installment, released in 2019 by Lionsgate, followed Benoit Blanc as he attempts to figure out who killed the renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey, who died on the night of his 85th birthday.

The most recent pic, Glass Onion, bowed in 2022, takes Blanc to an entirely new case where a tech billionaire invites his closest friends to a private island for a murder mystery game. 

The pic premiered on Netflix after the streamer made a record-setting $450 million deal for the two sequels, with this being the third in the franchise.

It should be noted that Renner isn’t entirely new to the franchise. The actor’s likeness (in the form of a fictional branded hot sauce) plays an integral role in the plot of “Glass Onion.”

The Knives Out franchise is no stranger to delivering ensembles packed with star power, and this installment looks to be no different.

Production is set to start next month with Netflix planning to release sometime in 2025.
