One of the largest success tales on the field workplace proper now’s Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. The movie has made almost $250 million worldwide and whereas that is not almost as a lot as some current blockbusters, because it additionally price lots lower than these blockbusters to make, it is safely into worthwhile territory.
The film’s success makes it one of many greatest hits of the 12 months not a part of a franchise. However, it seems that is about to alter, as Johnson has confirmed that he’s now engaged on a Knives Out sequel which might see the return of Daniel Craig’s detective Benoit Blanc for an all new thriller.
Johnson confirmed the information to THR previous to final nights Golden Globe awards. Knives Out was nominated for a couple of awards and whereas it went dwelling empty handed, that possible hasn’t dampened anyone’s spirit to make the brand new movie, as Johnson apparently needs to leap on the challenge and get to work on it throughout the subsequent 12 months.
Rian Johnson did not go into any particular as to what this sequel could be about, however one assumes it will be one other whodunit the place Daniel Craig’s character, non-public detective Benoit Blanc, will get concerned in a model new case. If the sequel can put collectively one other nice solid of suspects as Knives Out did, then we may actually be in for an additional entertaining thriller.
Of course, Knives Out, whereas having all the weather of a basic thriller, additionally performed with the components in a variety of methods. While Daniel Craig’s detective was the one investigating the thriller, he wasn’t truly the principle character of the film. The story is instructed from the angle of one of many suspects, performed by Ana de Armas. It might be attention-grabbing to see if a Knives Out sequel switches this to be a extra conventional plot that focuses on the detective, or if we may see one thing solely new from the thoughts of Rian Johnson.
It appears like Rian Johnson is planning to leap proper into the Knives Out sequel as his subsequent challenge. The solely different challenge Johnson has on the horizon that we all know of is his Star Wars trilogy, however the precise scenario with these movies is unclear at this level. As far as we all know, they’re nonetheless occurring, however they’re additionally not the subsequent Star Wars movies we’re anticipating to see.
Assuming the films do occur, Rian Johnson has a while earlier than he’ll be leaping into them, however it may very well be the explanation Johnson needs to maneuver on the Knives Out sequel so shortly is that he needs to make sure he can get it performed earlier than he wants to show his consideration to the galaxy far, far, away.
Daniel Craig is about to complete his run as James Bond, however it seems he’ll be changing that with one other probably recurring position. For these of us who have been followers of Knives Out, that sounds nearly good.
