Knives Out was a huge hit when it was released in cinemas (remember those?) in 2019 and ever since, fans have been wanting more of Daniel Craig's super sleuth Benoit Blanc.

Last February, it was confirmed that a sequel was officially on the way, and director Rian Johnson even asked for help naming the film on Twitter.

But, according to Deadline, there's not one but TWO Knives Out sequels being developed and they could be heading to Netflix.

Apparently, the streaming service is closing in on a deal to make two sequels which will see Johnson returning to direct and Craig reprising his role as Blanc.

Johnson has already written the follow-ups and the deal is said to be worth over $400 million, meaning it would be one of the biggest streamer movie deals in history.

The first sequel will reportedly begin shooting on June 28 in Greece, and casting will begin immediately.

While we know that Craig will be returning for the sequels, Chris Evans and his chunky knit sweater sadly will not be appearing.

When asked last year if we'd see Captain America in the sweater again, Johnson said: "Not in my movie. But just in life? Probably. He lives in Boston, so..."

The director explained fans should expect the sequel to be set in a "whole new location" and boast a "whole new cast," adding: "Think of it just like another Hercule Poirot novel from Agatha Christie."

Knives Out is available to buy on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K now.
