Rian Johnson took to social media on Monday to announce the title of his Knives Out sequel. It will be called “Glass Onion.”
On Monday, writer and director Rian Johnson took to social media to share some information on his Knives Out. “Something I love about Agatha Christie is how she never tread water creatively. I think there’s a misperception that her books use the same formula over and over, but fans know the opposite is true.” He went on to add, “t wasn’t just settings or murder methods, she was constantly stretching the genre conceptually. Under the umbrella of the whodunnit she wrote spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies, glam travelogues.”
He concluded by saying, “When I made Knives Out, that’s what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc – to emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, reason for being… and (ta dah) title.”
He then shared a title reveal video.
