Actress Jessica Henwick has went from sword-wielding in Iron Fist to kicking ass as a Sand Snake in Game of Thrones to altering reality (or whatever they plan on doing) in the forthcoming Matrix sequel. Now, she is the latest to join the cast of Rian Johnson’s forthcoming Knives Out sequel, according to Deadline.
No word yet on who she will play. In fact, there is no word at all about the plot of the sequel, all that we know is that Johnson is writing and directing and Daniel Craig is reprising his role as Detective Benoit Blanc — accent and all.
With Henwick on board, we noticed that this cast will have a lot more color than the first installment. Henwick joins new previously announced cast members Dave Bautista, Janelle Monáe as well as Leslie Odom Jr. Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline and Edward Norton are also newbies to the whodunit franchise at Netflix. Production is set to start this summer in Greece.
Henwick is epped by CAA and attorney Michael A. Auerbach.
