Fans of Rian Johnson's Knives Out franchise have been eagerly waiting for any nuggets of information regarding the highly anticipated Knives Out 3, and recent statements from the director are bound to stoke their excitement further. During a recent interview with The Wrap, Johnson shared an encouraging update regarding the film's progress. In his own words, "it's coming along".
Johnson's creative efforts, like those of many others in the industry, were temporarily halted due to the WGA writers' strike, which came to a close earlier this month. However, with the strike now in the rearview mirror, Johnson confirms that he is fully focused on bringing the third installment of the popular franchise to life. "I’ve got the premise, I’ve got the setting, I’ve got what the movie is in my head. It’s just a matter of writing the damn thing," revealed Johnson.
The second movie in the franchise, ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’, premiered on Netflix in December 2022. Fans enthusiastically welcomed the return of Daniel Craig in the character of detective Benoit Blanc. The detective, known for his sharp intellect and keen eye for detail, found himself in the middle of a fresh mystery, with an entirely new set of characters to scrutinize and suspects to interrogate.
Featuring a star-studded ensemble cast, including Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, and Leslie Odom Jr., ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’, offered the perfect blend of suspense and distinctive humor that has become synonymous with the franchise. Although there is yet no confirmed casting information available for Knives Out 3, it’s a safe bet that Detective Blanc, embodied impeccably by Craig, will return for the third act.
Knives Out's streaming home, Netflix, secured the rights to the second and third movies of the franchise in 2021, shelling out a staggering $450 million. Despite this investment, Johnson suggests that this might not be the end of Detective Blanc's adventures. He hints that as long as they continue to have fun while offering fresh experiences with each film and keep challenging themselves, they would keep producing.
More importantly, Johnson echoes the sentiment that it's crucial for them not to feel as if they are simply rehashing old stories or repeating themselves. To keep the series fresh and engaging, they aim to emulate the style of Agatha Christie, delivering something new and surprising with every film.
For the impatient fans yearning for the arrival of the third installment of Knives Out on Netflix, there is a rich collection of fantastic movies currently available on the streaming platform. Distinctively, there is a selection of the best Netflix movies that are sure to keep viewers entertained and occupied as they count the days until the release of Knives Out 3.
The anticipation surrounding Knives Out 3 continues to build. Given Johnson's knack for surprising his audience with cleverly woven narratives and unforgettable characters, fans can look forward to yet another immersive mystery that promises to keep them on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
