While Rian Johnson’s production continues Knife from 2 In Greece, the first behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Netflix’s star-studded crime sequel have finally arrived online. The Knife from 2 Set photos, which you can see below, gave us a first look at most of the leading characters, including Daniel Craig’s return as Benoit Blanc along with Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, and more.
In addition, the photos also confirmed that Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke was actually part of the all-star cast, as he also co-directed a scene Army of the Dead Star Dave Bautista. It’s unclear whether Hawke is the only surprise actor for the project or whether fans should expect other unannounced stars to appear as well.
