Andrew Scott Joins Cast of Knives Out 3

Andrew Scott Joins Cast of Knives Out 3

We just got the reveal for the next Knives Out movie with Wake Up Dead Man, and now the cast is slowly being put together. What’s great for Sherlock and Fleabag fans is that there’s one fan-favorite actor that’s going to be sharing the screen with Benoit Blanc.

According to Variety, Andrew Scott has been cast in Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery.  He joins a cast which includes Josh O’Connor (Challengers) and Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla). Of course, it wouldn’t be a Knives Out movie if Daniel Craig wasn’t back to reprise his role as Blanc.

We don’t have any details on who Scott can be playing, but we know that he can play both endearing and threatening depending on what the role demands.

Though some may think that Johnson may be leaning too hard on these ‘whodunnits’ ever since Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he does say that he thinks that the genre is very diverse, and there are multiple ways that he can take a stab at the murder-mystery with this new IP. He says:

“I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is… There’s a whole tonal spectrum from Carr to Christie, and getting to explore that range is one of the most exciting things about making Benoit Blanc movies. We’re about to go into production on the 3rd one, and I’m very, very excited to share the title, which gives a little hint of where it’s going.”

Hopefully we get more cast announcments soon; fingers crossed Kelly Marie Tran or Adam Driver get cast in this one.

Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery is set to come to Netflix sometime in 2025.
