It’s time to sharpen your knives: The official title for Rian Johnson’s upcoming Knives Out sequel has been revealed. Knives Out 2 should be removed from the middle of your conspiracy bulletin board.
Instead, try Pencil in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Is there anything we can glean from this information about the film’s top-secret plot? Let’s look into it.
What we know about Glass Onion is as follows: In the new film, master sleuth Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is tasked with uncovering another mystery in the Mediterranean.
The film’s beach setting is reminiscent of a number of previous whodunits, notably Agatha Christie’s Evil Under the Sun and Stephen Sondheim’s devilishly brilliant The Last of Sheila, which Johnson mentioned as an influence on the original Knives Out.
Of course, Benoit Blanc is a Sondheim lover, as evidenced by his singing along to “Losing My Mind” from the prolific composer Follies in the original Knives Out.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery also stars Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline alongside Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista, in addition to the returning Craig. We’ll have to wait and see how this mystery plays out. Because Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery won’t be available on Netflix until later this year, you’ve had plenty of time to put your wagers.
