Knives Out sequel officially confirmed by Lionsgate
A sequel to Knives Out has been officially confirmed.
Director Rian Johnson had previously said that he was developing the sequel and hoped to go into production in the next year, but now producers Lionsgate have confirmed it.
Knives Out starred Daniel Craig as Blanc, a super-sleuth who is called to investigate after Christopher Plummer's Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday.
Sorry To Bother You's Lakeith Stanfield, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell and Christopher Plummer all appeared in supporting roles in the movie, which has grossed over $250 million at the box office from a budget of just $40 million.
Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, wrote and directed the movie.
With Craig now finished in his time as James Bond and Johnson's Star Wars trilogy still in the early stages, work on the sequel could begin as soon as Craig is finished promoting No Time To Die.
