The follow-up to Netflix’s 2019 comedy catches up with Nick and Audrey Spitz (Sandler and Aniston) four years after solving their first murder mystery. They’re now full-time detectives struggling to get their private eye agency off the ground. While attending the wedding of their friend the Maharaja (Adeel Akhtar) on his private island, the groom is kidnapped for ransom — making each glamorous guest, family member, and the bride herself a suspect. Nick and Audrey are thrown back into a high-stakes case – one that finally gives them everything they’ve ever dreamed of: a shot at their detective agency finally becoming successful…and their long-awaited trip to Paris.
The film is directed by The Wedding Ringer helmer Jeremy Garelick (the first was directed by Kyle Newacheck, known for Game Over, Man! and the What We Do in the Shadows series). Murder Mystery scribe James Vanderbilt returns as writer here.
Sandler and Aniston are among the producers of this film, which also has Charlize Theron among its executive producers. Some strong support in the cast, including Mark Strong, Mélanie Laurent, Jodie Turner-Smith, Kuhoo Verma, with John Kani, and Dany Boon.
Murder Mystery 2 will be streaming on Netflix from March 31st.
