Netflix’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will be out this holiday season


Netflix’s Knives Out sequel now has an official title and launch window: you’ll be capable to watch Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller this vacation season, the corporate introduced Monday.

The upcoming Knives Out installment shall be directed by Rian Johnson, who helmed the primary film, and can once more star Daniel Craig as detective Benoit Blanc. The remainder of the forged is shaping as much as be really superior — it consists of Dave Bautista, Madelyn Cline, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, and Leslie Odom Jr., in response to a brief trailer launched by Netflix.

We don’t know a lot concerning the plot of the film simply but — in response to Netflix’s official description, it’ll happen in Greece — however Johnson shared a bit about his imaginative and prescient for the franchise in a thread on Twitter:

One thing I really like about Agatha Christie is how she by no means tread water creatively. I feel there’s a misperception that her books use the identical method again and again, however followers know the alternative is true.

It wasn’t simply settings or homicide strategies, she was always stretching the style conceptually. Below the umbrella of the whodunnit she wrote spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character research, glam travelogues.

After I made Knives Out, that’s what excited me concerning the prospect of constructing extra mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc — to emulate Christie and have each movie be like a complete new e book, with its personal tone, ambition, purpose for being… and (ta dah) title.

Netflix landed each this sequel and one other one final 12 months in a deal reportedly value greater than $400 million. Johnson may even direct the third film, and Craig is ready to star in it as effectively.
