Lionsgate has reportedly already greenlit Rian Johnson‘s runaway hit whodunit Knives Out for a sequel, which made $247 million worldwide and had a $40 million budget.
Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter at Lionsgate's pre-Golden Globes party on Saturday night that he was already developing a sequel centered on Daniel Craig's Southern detective Benoit Blanc investigating a new case. The filmmaker added that he was eager to make the pic quickly, ideally in the next year.
tbh him wanting this to go in production asap could very well mean he wants to do one more smaller project before starting work on star wars, since the latter would eat up a considerable amount of time
i’d be happy about a sequel, but idk if i want any of the other cast members to make an appearance in it. maybe focus on a different mystery and then have blanc enter to solve it
I take it for granted Blanc will be the only returning character. It would make the most sense. Knives Out is done.
hell the murder is solved lol also it was smart making Marta the heart of the story, considering the mystery but also so that they could have Blanc solve another murder in a sequel and here we are
i think it would only make sense for marta to return as a cameo or only be mentioned in passing. the family is done.
idk, the local cops maybe? i enjoyed them all together and i guess you could write them in as having resigned from the police force to go on with blanc’s private investigating adventures as a team lmao. i would def watch that. but even that seems like a stretch.
