Daniel Craig, who performs tenacious detective Benoit Blanc, is the one returning castmember for the sequel, which is solely titled as Glass Onion onscreen.
“I’ve tried exhausting to make them self-contained,” Johnson stated. “Truthfully, I’m pissed off that now we have A Knives Out Thriller within the title. You realize? I would like it to only be known as Glass Onion.”
The filmmaker continued, “I get it, and I would like everybody who appreciated the primary film to know that is subsequent within the collection, but in addition, the entire attraction to me is it’s a brand new novel off the shelf each time. However there’s a gravity of a thousand suns towards serialized storytelling.”

“I’d find it irresistible to be [in theaters] longer; I’d find it irresistible to be in additional theaters,” he stated. “But in addition, I respect that Netflix has achieved this, as a result of this was an enormous effort on their half, and the theater chains, to achieve throughout the aisle and make this occur. I’m hoping it does rather well so we are able to show that they’ll complement one another.”
