The Knives Out 2 set photos, which you can check out below, provided us our first look at most of the main cast including Daniel Craig return as Benoit Blanc along with Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, and more.

In addition, the photos have also confirmed that Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke has indeed joined the all-star cast as he was also seen filming a scene with Army of the Dead star Dave Bautista.
