Not much. There's the possibility that Lakeith Stanfield and Noah Segan will reprise their roles.

Netflix Near $400M+ Deal For ‘Knives Out’ 2 & 3; Daniel Craig & Director Rian Johnson Reprising
https://deadline.com/2021/03/knives-out ... 234724575/

Netflix is closing in on a deal to make two sequels to the 2019 hit whodunit Knives Out, which Rian Johnson will direct with Daniel Craig reprising his role as super sleuth Benoit Blanc. Johnson, who wrote the original, has written the sequels and is producing with partner Ram Bergman. Sources said the deal will be worth north of $400 million, making it one of the biggest streamer movie deals in history.

A sequel was expected, but the recent discreet auction that went on between three streamers — Apple and Amazon were the others — was a surprise. How was it possible? The original was acquired in a single picture deal by MRC, which distributed the film through Lionsgate. The first film cost $40 million and turned in a global gross north of $311 million. Owned and licensed by Johnson and Bergman on a picture by picture basis, Johnson and Bergman had the right to make the richest sequel deal they could. It gives Netflix a bonafide event film franchise for its slate. The first picture will begin shooting June 28 in Greece, and casting will begin immediately.

The deal is remarkable, considering Knives Out‘s origins. It happened because Danny Boyle exited the James Bond movie, leaving Craig with some downtime. Johnson, who loved the Agatha Christie whodunits, had one of those in mind, and he and Bergman readied it before Cary Joji Fukunaga came in as 007 director and was ready to shoot No Time To Die, Craig’s swan song as the British secret agent. Knives Out, with a killer cast and a meticulously crafted script, was a crowd pleasing hit that sets up perfectly for more mysteries. This deal should land in the $450 million range.

CAA, which reps Johnson and Craig, is brokering the deal. No one was commenting.

I'm a bit disheartened that this won't get a theatrical release- or at least a traditional one. Nevertheless, Netflix are the kong of the film industry and Daniel would be a fool not to get into bed with them. For this reason, pivoting his other franchise to Netflix may actually be a genius move, especially as there is no given that the theatrical business is going to bounce back.

I also think that Netflix will spare no expense in getting the glitziest cast possible. I mean they are already forking out to shoot the whole thing in Greece! Also, all the big stars are out fo work looking for projects and this film gives them a free holiday. If you thought Knives Out had a stacked cast, I think the sequel will be bananas.

Plus, more of Daniel hamming it up as Beniot is no bad thing (though I hope he does something serious again...)

I've read all your post. I've got everything in it, but the only thing I think now is Greece, beach, sea, summer...... And I guess you won't need a lot of clothes.....

I'm hoping that the Greece location means that Rian will add a more Hitchockian sense of glamour to proceedings. Wouldn't it be great to have Gal Gadot or Scarlett Johansson play a femme fatale. Someone trying to seduce Blanc.....
