Emmy-winning actress Kerry Washington has been confirmed to join the third installment of ‘Knives Out.’

Washington will join a star-studded cast that includes Daniel Craig, reprising his role as the enigmatic detective Benoit Blanc, Andrew Scott, Josh O’Connor, and Cailee Spaeny.

The ‘Knives Out’ series, directed by Rian Johnson, is a mix of whodunit mystery and comedy. The first film, released on Netflix in 2019, quickly became a hit among audiences and critics alike. Its success led to the announcement of a second and third film, with the third film’s title recently revealed as ‘Wake Up Dead Man: The Knives Out Mystery’.

While the plot is currently kept under wraps, the third installment is set to be a standalone mystery, not directly connected to the previous films. Washington’s addition and other new cast members suggest that the film will continue the series’ tradition of intricate, unpredictable plots and surprising twists.
