The Knives Out 2 starring Daniel Craig officially titled ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery‘. The Knives Out sequel titled is revealed by the director Rian Johnson on his Twitter post. See the post below.
Daniel Craig reprises his role as Benoit Blanc, a master detective taking on a new murder case. The film also stars Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista.
“Something I love about Agatha Christie is how she never tread water creatively. I think there’s a misperception that her books use the same formula over and over, but fans know the opposite is true,” said Johnson. “It wasn’t just settings or murder methods, 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. 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.”
The film is scheduled to be released in late 2022, expected to debut at a film festival prior to its release on Netflix and in theaters. Netflix is reportedly considering a new release model for movies like Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, which would give the film a 45-day window in theaters before being released on the streamer.
