Knives Out is a hit mystery movie that came out in 2019. The movie is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer. Will the Knives Out 2 movie be continued to be updated in the future?
The movie revolves around the famous detective Benoit Blanc (Craig), who investigates the mysterious death of the patriarch of a rich and dysfunctional family. Johnson was inspired by the queen of detective novels, Agatha Christie, to make a murder mystery movie. The movie also received critical acclaim and grossed $311.4 million worldwide.
Earlier this year, Netflix acquired the rights to two future installments of the movie for $450 million, with actor Craig set to reprise his role in the second installment.
Knives Out 2 is currently in production, and here’s everything you need to know about the information from the movie update .
What is the storyline of Knives Out 2?
Johnson had been working on the Knives Out 2 storyline long before it was acquired by Netflix. Wanting to follow in Christie’s footsteps, he told Screenrant after the first movie.
” I would be happy. We’ll see how this one goes, you know. But if this movie is okay, if I could just get together with Daniel every few years and do a new Benoit Blanc mystery? New locations, new cast, new mysteries. It would be great fun ”, said Johnson.
Craig will return as Blanc to solve another mystery. Much like how Christie’s Poirot has solved crimes of all kinds, Johnson prepares Blanc for a new challenge.
Although specific details were not disclosed, Johnson told SiriusXM last year, “ There are so many different things you can do with it. And that’s what’s nice about it. You look at Agatha Christie’s books, and it’s not like every book is a mansion, a library and a detective. Apart from setting, he also explores many different subgenres. He finds a different way of narrative in each of those subgenres ”.
Who Are the Cast in Knives Out 2?
Craig is confirmed to reprise his role, and the rest of the cast will include big names like Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Edward Norton (Fight Club), singer Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures), Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision), Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), and Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton). Actors Ethan Hawke (Training Day), Madelyn Cline (Outer Banks), and Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones) were also added as part of the cast.
When will Knives Out 2 Release?
The movie begins with shooting earlier this year in June 2021 on an island in Greece and runs through July. Johnson later took to Twitter to confirm that principal photography was halfway through and movieing would resume at other locations.
Principal photography then officially closed on September 13, 2021, which Johnson announced by sharing a black-and-white photo on his Instagram of the Empire State Building in New York City.
Currently, the movie Knives Out 2 will be released in 2022, but the exact date is still not confirmed at this time.
