Rian Johnson is known for many things. One of them is for directing one of the most divisive Star Wars movie to ever come out. On a more positive note, he’s also known for making Knives Out, one of 2019’s best movies.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at Lionsgate’s pre-Golden Globes party, Johnson revealed that he’s already working on a sequel to Knives Out. He wants to focus it on the next case of detect Benoit Blance, the character played by Daniel Craig.
Johnson’s producing partner Ram Bergman also said that Craig himself is excited to come back and play Benoit. Seeing as how it will focus on a new case, it’s unlikely that characters will be coming back but we’ll have to wait and see.
“Daniel had so much fun doing it, and he wants to do more.”
