Both stars were confirmed to be joining the cast last month, with Jeremy Renner returning to the screen after the horrific 2023 snow plowing accident that nearly killed him.

He was severely injured in the January 1, 2023, accident that left him with more than 30 broken bones, a collapsed lung and pierced liver from a shattered rib. 

The Netflix production started principal photography on Monday and director Rian Johnson gushed about the cast he has assembled for the film.

‘We’ve been very lucky with each of these movies to have gathered some of my favorite actors on the planet, and that’s absolutely the case here,’ he said. 

‘They’re also all lovely folks who get along, which is the dinner party aspect of it. When you’re making an ensemble movie like this I think that’s key.’

The cast also includes Adam Scott, Glenn Close and Kerry Washington. 

Renner takes on a whole part in the third film. He appeared in the second film in the form of a bottle of ‘Renning Hot’ habanero chili pepper sauce.

He took that joke in stride and Johnson was thrilled to get the chance to work with him.

‘Jeremy’s a great actor who I’ve wanted to work with for a long time,’ Rian told Netflix’s Tudum.

‘I was very relieved he thought the hot sauce thing was funny! He’s playing a proper part in this one, we’ll keep the sauce off screen. Maybe we’ll sneak a few bottles onto the catering table.’

Details of the mystery Blanc will be tasked with solving are being kept tight under wraps.

In the brief teaser trailer the narrator simply promises it is his ‘most dangerous case yet.’

The first Knives Out drew its title from a Radiohead song, the second from a Beatles tune.

The third film’s title comes from a 1997 U2 song, Wake Up Dead Man, off the album Pop.

Johnson previously gave Knives Out fans a taste of what to expect in the latest whodunnit.

He posted on X (formerly Twitter): ‘I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is. 

There’s a whole tonal spectrum from Carr to Christie, and getting to explore that range is one of the most exciting things about making Benoit Blanc movies.

‘We’re about to go into production on the 3rd one, and I’m very, very excited to share the title, which gives a little hint of where it’s going. (sic)’
