Madelyn’s part has yet to be revealed, as the plot of Knives Out 2 has remained top-secret.
Her previous credits include Stranger Things, Boy Erased and Vice Principals.
Cline is next set to appear in Blumhouse’s Once Upon A Time in Staten Island and will return for season two of the Netflix teen mystery-drama Outer Banks this summer.
Production is set to begin this summer in Greece.
Netflix scooped up the rights to the sequel as well as a third installment in March, reportedly shelling out $400million for the films, per Deadline.
The original Knives Out was centered around the investigation of the murder of a wealthy patriarch of a highly disjointed family, played by the late Cristopher Plummer.

The ensemble cast included Don Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette and Katherine Langford.
Johnson first came up with the movie’s idea in 2005, although he did not begin work on the project until after the release of 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Knives Out received rave reviews upon its 2019 release, lauded for the strong performances and the intricately woven plot.

The movie was also a financial success, as it went on to gross just over $311 million on a budget of $40 million.
Johnson was later nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, although the distinction ultimately went to Bong Joon-ho & Han Jin-won for their work on Parasite.
In January of last year, the filmmaker confirmed that he was starting work on a sequel to the feature, and the project was officially greenlit the following month.
