Break out your cable-knit sweaters and start sharpening your tongues because Netflix is preparing to serve up two “Knives Out” sequels.

According to Deadline, both star Daniel Craig and writer-director Rian Johnson are returning for both movies which will be standalone sequels to the 2019 Oscar-nominated film.

A source told Deadline the deal is worth more than $400 million.

In “Knives Out,” Daniel Craig played super sleuth Benoit Blanc who solves the murder of a famous author with no shortage of suspects along with the help of a trusty nurse. The film also starred Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Toni Collette, Don Johnson and several others.

Rian Johnson has reportedly already written both sequels. The first one is expected to start shooting in Greece at the end of June and non-Craig roles are being cast. There’s no word on whether any other of the original cast members will be a part of the sequels.

No story details for either script were disclosed.
