Although Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery just came to Netflix last month, director Rian Johnson already has some ideas brewing for what a third film might look like.
Speaking to Empire Magazine recently, Johnson said that the next film he plans to make would be the third entry in the Knives Out series and that he’s got some ideas brewing for what Benoit Blanc’s next adventure could be.
“I’m making the next [Benoit Blanc movie] next,” Johnson said. “Because it’s the most exciting thing right now to me. That’s served me really well. I feel like any movie I’m making, I need to be making it because I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’m jumping into the next Benoit Blanc next because I can’t think about another story … I’ve got a big cloud of ideas, but it hasn’t all snapped into focus yet. It’s exciting, though, and it’s very, very different from this one. That’s what I’m excited about.”
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery was once again written and directed by Rian Johnson, who produced the film along with Ram Bergman via their T-Street Productions banner. The sequel follows Daniel Craig’s Detective Benoit Blanc as he travels to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colorful suspects.
Joining Daniel Craig are Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Edward Norton (Fight Club), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures), Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision), Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), Madelyn Cline (Outer Banks), Jessica Henwick (Love and Monsters), and Ethan Hawke (Sinister).
