The cast of “Murder Mystery 2” is growing by 10 people.
On Monday, Netflix announced eight new cast members and two returning actors, who will star alongside Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in the comedy sequel.
Adeel Akhtar will reprise the role of The Maharajah and John Kani will return as Colonel Ulenga from the 2019 Netflix original series. Newcomers to the group include frequent baddie Mark Strong, Mélanie Laurent, Jodie Turner-Smith , Kuhoo Verma (“Plan B”), Enrique Arce (“Money Heist”), Tony Goldwyn, Zurin Villanueva (“Mother Milk”) and “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar” and co-writer Annie Mumolo.
Jeremy Garelick (“The One Who Wears the Wedding Ring”) take the position of director by Kyle Newacheck, who directed the first film, and the script is again credited to James Vanderbilt with modifications by Garelick, who also co-wrote 2006’s Aniston car “The Break-Up”.
While plot details for the sequel have not been revealed, the first film stars Sandler and Aniston as a peaceful couple who are caught up in a murder investigation after the same billionaire on his yacht. Given the title, one imagines the duo are caught up in another murder mystery in this sequel.
Adam Sandler and Allen Covert are producing “Murder Mystery 2” for Happy Madison with Jennifer Aniston for Echo Films, Tripp Vinson for Vinson Films, James Stern for Endgame Entertainment and James Vanderbilt.
Netflix has yet to set a release date for the sequel, but filming is set to begin.
