Rian Johnson has started shooting “Knives Out 2” in Greece, which means his all-star cast is getting a nice summer vacation. Use your sun screen kids!
Ethan Hawke and Jada Pinkett Smith are the latest to join an eclectic group that starts with Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc.
Already booked are Janelle Monáe, Kate Hudson , Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista, Madelyn Cline, and Jessica Henwick.
If you haven’t seen Ethan in “The Good Lord Bird” on Showtime, you must. It’s an incendiary performance, the whole mini series is terrific. Can it get Emmy Awards? Showtime has had trouble landing awards in the past, and this year “The Good Lord Bird” is up against “Mare of Easttown” and “The Undoing” on HBO. But nominations shouldn’t be hard to come by.
By the way, I was first to report the two sequels to “Knives Out.” You can read the story here.
