The Knives Out 3 cast list is finally rolling out and it’s stacked!

Officially titled Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery, the third installment in the franchise will once again follow Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc as he solves another murder.

Though the film is still in the very early stages, several details have already been teased by star Daniel Craig and Rian Johnson, the writer and director of the first two films.

As Netflix announced the official title for the film in May, a clip teased that this will be Blanc’s “most dangerous case yet.”

Like previous installments, the upcoming film will feature some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Fleabag actor Andrew Scott and Challengers star Josh O'Connor were some of the first names attached, and recently others have joined the cast, including Jeremy Renner and Mila Kunis.

Though details about their characters are being kept under wraps at the moment, it’s clear we’re in for a star-studded adventure.

Here’s everything to know about the Knives Out 3 cast.

Daniel Craig will be back as the famed private investigator Benoit Blanc. Fresh off his role as James Bond, Craig originated the character in the first Knives Out film in 2019, which starred Chris Evans and Ana de Armas.

Following the incredible success of the first film, a sequel was released in 2022 titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Though Craig reprised his role in the follow-up, it featured an entirely new cast and the plot had no connection to the first film.
