The cast of Rian Johnson’s Knives Out sequel is rapidly filling out with Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe all joining the upcoming film. Deadline reports that Hahn has signed on to a role in the film, as have Monae and Norton. Details on the roles for the three have yet to be revealed, much like the plot of the film.

The three join the previously-announced Dave Bautista and Daniel Craig in the film, which is known to be following Craig’s Benoit Blanc from the first film as he moves on to solve a new crime that is unconnected to the previous film. Hahn was most recently scene in Marvel’s WandaVision as Agatha Harkness, while Monae last starred in last year’s Antebellum. Norton’s last film was 2019’s Motherless Brooklyn.

Netflix acquired the rights to the movie in a deal that is reportedly worth in the $400 million range. The first film was a massive hit grossing $311 million worldwide against a $40 million budget. Production on the new film will kick off in Greece this summer.
