Jamie Lee Curtis Confirms Thromby Family Won’t Return For Knives Out Sequel

The planned sequel for Knives Out was presumed to be leaving the awful members of the Thromby family behind, and Jamie Lee Curtis has confirmed it. As reported last week, Netflix is closing in on a major deal for two sequels to Rian Johnson’s smash hit mystery worth north of $600 million. It had been reported that the films would follow Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc and it was thus assumed that the suspicious family from the first film would not be involved.

That suspicion has been confirmed by Curtis, who played Linda Thromby in the film. She wrote:

“To clear up any rumors, the Thromby family is in family counseling and the therapist suggested they stay away from Benoit Blanc in the future. Linda was fine as she kicked her loafer wearing prick of a husband, sorry @donjohnson to the curb. The rest of them are hustling. Ransom is apparently in the knitting sweater business, a new skill he picked up in the slammer. Joni has some vaginal scented bath bomb, Walt is self publishing his memoir. NONE of us will be joining Mr. Blanc in Greece. As the family spokesperson we wish the filmmakers all our best in their new venture.”

Notably, Curtis does not mention Ana de Armas’ character of Marta Cabrera, the nurse who worked for the family and who assisted Benoit in his investigation of Harlan’s death. Marta ended the first film in control of the house, but as the breakout star as the film it’s not impossible (though it is perhaps unlikely) that de Armas would return.
