Daniel Craig on the set of

Production on the third installment of Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out franchise is officially underway.

The director and writer gave fans a first-look at the beloved detective Benoit Blanc, played by Daniel Craig, who is set to see himself embroiled in another murder mystery in Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery.

A host of top talent have already signed on to whet the appetite of audiences. The suspects so far include Dune‘s Josh Brolin, Challengers’ Josh O’Connor, Civil War actress Cailee Spaeny, Ripley star Andrew Scott, Scandal alum Kerry Washington, screen and stage veteran Glenn Close, Hawkeye straight shooter Jeremy Renner, and Mila Kunis, who starred in thriller Luckiest Girl Alive for Netflix.

On Monday, Johnson shared a photo of Craig on set, writing: “Aaaaand we’re off! Today is day 1 of shooting on the next Benoit Blanc mystery ‘Wake Up Dead Man’ – see you on the other side.” He attached a black and white photo of Craig, in the most Blanc-esque three-piece suit, staring pensively to his right.

Plot details and character information are still under wraps, but we can expect another wild maze of accusations and murder that we’ve seen in Knives Out and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. (Here’s everything we know so far about the third film.)

Johnson wrote the script and is directing. He is also producing with his partner Ram Bergman via their T-Street banner.
