For the premiere of the second season of ‘The Flight Attendant’ on HBO Max this April 22, Kaley Cuoco is in full promotion and in an interview with Glamor magazine the journalist asked her if she had wanted very, very much a role that she had not been given: “It actually happened recently,” Cuoco says, “It was in the sequel to ‘Daggers in the back'”.
The Big Bang Theory actress was convinced that the character was hers, but it ended up in the hands of another partner: “Kate Hudson ended up keeping it, but I was so sure I had my bags packed for Greece. And in the end they didn’t give it to me.” Normally, she says, she doesn’t take rejection particularly badly, but this time she was devastated: “I had already done readings to test the chemistry, I had done zooms… And I didn’t get it. I cried and cried all night, but it was for Kate which is great.”
Although she did not manage to gain a foothold in ‘Daggers in the back 2’, the drama did not last long, since the next day she was called to star in ‘Meet Cute’ with Pete Davidson: “When I read the script I thought it was magical and I never would have done it if they had given me ‘Daggers’. I couldn’t be happier with how things have turned out.”. But also, do not lose hope: “The same they make me a casting for the third installment”.
What we know about ‘Daggers in the back 2’
Directed again by Rian Johnson, this sequel is produced and distributed by Netflix, but will have a limited release in commercial theaters in the fall of 2022. Also, when the company bought the rights to the franchise for $450 million, it agreed with the director that I would make not one, but two more movies, both starring Daniel Craig and with a budget of 40 million each. Of course, with total creative freedom. Nothing has been revealed from the official synopsis beyond the fact that we are facing a new mystery in a new location, with a new cast and even new mechanics, “exactly what Agatha Christie did in every Poirot book” according to Johnson. Repire, yes, Craig as Benoit Blanc and Hudson, Ethan Hawke, Jessica Henwick, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Madelyn Cline, Leslie Odom Jr and Janelle Monáe have joined the cast, although Jada Pinkett Smith has also been seen for the filming, which took place last summer and ended in September.
