Challengers star Josh O'Connor and Priscilla's Cailee Spaeny were the first stars to be confirmed, followed by Fleabag's Andrew Scott and Scandal's Kerry Washington.

Marvel star Jeremy Renner, Glenn Close and Mila Kunis have also been announced to appear in the upcoming blockbuster.

Details of the film's plot are currently being kept under wraps, but its title has left some fans speculating whether the movie could be connected to the U2 song of the same name.

Wake Up Dead Man is expected to land in cinemas sometime next year, three years on from the previous Knives Out movie.

Glass Onion saw Detective Blanc arrive in Greece, where tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) hosts a murder mystery game for his friends on his private island. The game later spills into real life when one of the guests dies after drinking from a glass intended for Bron.

Last year, McCormack starred alongside Emma Thompson in sex comedy Good Luck to You, Leo Grande. The actor later received two BAFTA nominations for his performance, in the Lead Actor and Rising Star categories.
