“‘Knives Out 2’ – Rian Johnson Film Gets Official Title, Release date, Cast and more”
The sequel to Knives Out, directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daniel Craig, has been given an official title: Glass Onion.
One of my favourite things about Agatha Christie is that she never stops being original. “I think there’s a misconception that her works follow the same structure, but supporters know the reverse is true,” Johnson remarked. “It wasn’t only the settings or the murder ways; she was continually mentally extending the genre.” She authored spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial murderer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies, and glam travelogues under the umbrella of the whodunnit. That’s what thrilled me about doing more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc while I was making Knives Out – to copy Christie and have each film be like a completely new novel, with its own tone, ambition, and reason for being… as well as (ta dah) title
