Honestly, we are still not over Knives Out!
What a tease, Rian Johnson.
Let’s start with his Twitter post.
“When I made Knives Out, that’s what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc – to emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, reason for being…and (ta dah) title.”
Did you get the gist of it? Well, allow me to explain!
Knives Out are getting a sequel, and it is not called Knives Out 2. The new name is playing with people’s heads. The need video screaming the new title is out and will star Daniel Craig as the lead. Well, people weren’t expecting a twist, but it is what it is.
It’s “Glass Onion” and not “Knives Out 2”
The writer-director has revealed the release window of the show. Knives Out 2 is expected to launch on Netflix in the holiday season.
Johnson took some inspiration from Agatha as he writes, “She was constantly stretching the genre conceptually. Under the umbrella of the whodunnit she wrote spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies, glam travelogues.” Added Johnson, “When I made Knives Out, that’s what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel [Craig] as Benoit Blanc–to emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, the reason for being.”
The Knives Out 2 is officially called Glass Onion.
Watch the video that was released by Rian, and already has 1.6 M views.
