Knives Out 2 Set Photos Reveal Ethan Hawke & Jada Pinkett Smith Have Joined the Cast

Ethan Hawke and Jada Pinkett Smith both appear to have quietly joined the cast of the upcoming sequel Knives Out 2. On Monday, director Rian Johnson posted an image from the set announcing that filming on the project had officially begun. The photo didn’t show anyone from the cast, but the filmmaker expressed his excitement over Knives Out 2 finally starting its production on location in Greece.

“Aaaaaaaand WE’RE OFF! Day one of filming on the next Benoit Blanc mystery,” Johnson said. “Thanks to all the lovely patient people here in Greece for letting us do all this murdering on their peaceful shores.”

New images taken from the set have since been leaked online and are being shared throughout social media. Some photos reveal Kate Hudson, Daniel Craig and Dave Bautista in character to film some scenes for the movie, and many fans were surprised to see Ethan Hawke present in some of the images. Chatting it up with the Guardians of the Galaxy star, Hawke appears to be squirting water into Bautista’s mouth holding some kind of water pistol in a couple of the photos with Madelyn Cline standing by.

Another image taken from the set reveals Jada Pinkett Smith on location wearing a red and white gown. Like Hawke, her inclusion as a part of the Knives Out cast hadn’t yet been officially announced by Johnson or Netflix. Even so, the reveal does have a lot of people excited about the ensemble cast that just keeps getting better and better.
