Jessica Henwick Joins Rian Johnson’s Awesome ‘Knives Out 2’ Cast

If you’re like me and Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing was the very best thing about Iron Fist and pretty much all of Marvel Netflix? Then this has been a pretty good time for you, because Henwick has been on quite a roll. She’s already wrapped a lead role in The Matrix 4, in what will undoubtedly be the most prominent of her career, and now Henwick is heading back to Netflix for Rian Johnson’s anticipated Knives Out 2.

Deadline reports Henwick has joined the increasingly awesome Knives Out 2 cast. The first of two sequels Johnson is doing for Netflix, the whodunnit will see Daniel Craig return, joined by Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson, Madelyn Cline and Edward Norton. Other than Craig’s eccentric detective Benoit Blanc, we have no idea who the others are playing, and that includes Henwick.

Henwick is currently shooting another Netflix blockbuster, The Gray Man, alongside Ryan Gosling and a pair of Knives Out veterans in Chris Evans and Ana de Armas. It was a busy 2020 for Henwick as she starred in Love & Monsters, Underwater, and On the Rocks.

Knives Out 2 begins shooting later this month.
