Sharpen your blades, because it’s time to bring your knives out once again.
It looks like the mystery will continue as it was recently announced that ‘Knives Out’ will be getting not one, but two sequels!
Whodunit part two and three
According to Deadline
, Netflix is currently sealing the deal to acquire the ‘Knives Out’ IP in order to produce two sequels.
The second and third installment of the film will be directed by Rian Johnson, with Daniel Craig expected to returnas detective Benoit Blanc.
The 53-year-old actor told Entertainment Weekly
he'd be "over the moon" to play the character again.
"I mean, I'd do anything for Rian," Craig said.
Apparently, the sequels have already been written and filming is set to begin on 28 June in Greece.
The official Twitter account for the film also left a few cheeky tweets and subtle hints following the news.
No word yet on whom else will be casted alongside Craig, or if any of the other characters (read: Chris Evans) would return in the sequels.
Sources said the Netflix deal would be worth over US$400 million (RM1.659 billion), making it one of the biggest streamer movie deals in history.
Judging by how well 'Knives Out' did the last time out, we feel that the pennies spent will be well worth it.
