Benoit Blanc will return to solve another bizarre case in Knives Out 3 which will reportedly film later this year. More here. 

Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig are preparing to return to the wonderful world of Benoit Blanc. 

Collider reports that cameras are rolling on the third instalment of Johnson’s riotously fun franchise later this year. Craig will return to play the master sleuth and Netflix is backing the film as it did Glass Onion

That’s really all there is to this story. We have no casting news or even a title for the new whodunnit. We expect it won’t be called Knives Out 3; Knives Out 2 became Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery so expect something similar for the third film. 

In October 2023, Johnson did confirm that he was working on the script for Knives Out 3, but work was disrupted by the writers’ strike. 

“It’s coming along. I obviously couldn’t work during the strike, and now that it’s over, I’m diving in full force, and so it’s coming along. I’ve got the premise, I’ve got the setting, I’ve got what the movie is in my head. It’s just a matter of writing the damn thing,” Johnson told The Wrap at the time.

Glass Onion was a big hit for Netflix, but many criticised the decision not to give it a full theatrical release. The film received very enthusiastic reviews at festivals and once it dropped on Netflix, people in general seemed to love it. 

There’s no plot details available but we can expect another scathing take-down of the wealthy. Both of the previous Knives Out films managed to draw quite star-studded casts so we’re looking forward to seeing which famous actors are involved in the next Benoit Blanc mystery. 

We’ll keep you posted on more Knives Out 3 updates.
