The popular 2019 classic murder mystery Clue-esque film Knives Out is coming out with a sequel.

Confirmed back in March, seasoned actor Daniel Craig will resume his role as detective Benoit Blanc among a cast of other stars such as Toni Collette and Lakeith Stanfield.

According to HuffPost, Netflix obtained the rights to create two Knives Out sequels earlier in the year.

And with the recent cast announcements, Twitter has been having a lot of fun finding out which celebrity will be involved.

In the past week, musician and actress Janelle Monae and Kathryn Hahn, David Bautista, and Edward Norton have also been confirmed to be a part of the sequel.

As fans anxiously await more details regarding the cast of Knives Out 2, the announcements, which show a side-by-side photo of the actor/actress alongside the promotional image, have inspired a new meme trend on the wonderful world of Twitter.

And it all started with fans sharing who they would love to see a part of the film. The tweets below are celebrities people imagined would be a part of the film.

Then it got even more ridiculous with silly suggestions for the cast.

The director and writer Rian Johnson was nominated for Best Original Screenplay.

Knives Out also got three Golden Globes nominations: Best Actor—Motion Picture— Musical or Comedy and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress—Motion Picture—Musical or Comedy to Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas.

Knives Out chronicles the family of Harlan Thrombey, an uber-wealthy mystery writer. Thrombey goes to his 85th birthday party at his mansion in Massachusetts. The following morning, his housekeeper found him dead with his throat slit.

Police believed that his death was suicide. However, Benoit Blanc (Craig), a private detective, is paid to investigate. Everyone in the family became a suspect, so Blanc had to read between the lines to uncover what really happened.

The sequel is expected to begin filming sometime this summer.
