Deadline: Netflix to buy "Knives Out" sequels for $400 million



The original Knives Out was made for $40 million and grossed over $300 million worldwide in its initial 2019 theatrical run. Netflix is preparing to shell out lots of money for the rights to the sequels, a large sum that is necessary partly because of the need to buy out star Daniel Craig's contractual profit participation guarantee. It also helped that director/producer Rian Johnson engineered a bidding war between Netflix, Apple and Amazon for the rights.

Crying in the corner is Lionsgate, which distributed the original film but didn't have any stake in the sequels, the first of which is scheduled to begin production in Greece at the end of June.  Casting will soon commence.
