Knives Out 2 is officially happening at Lionsgate. Director Rian Johnson had previously revealed that he would love to make another installment with Daniel Craig on board as Detective Benoit Blanc. Craig has also expressed interest in returning after having such a good time making the first installment.
The film sees Daniel Craig star as a southern detective hot on the trailer of murder at a family home. Also amongst the cast of the first one are the likes of Chris Evans, Don Johnson, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Shannon.
Knives Out is currently close to the $300 million mark at the box office, with $156.3 million of that from domestic earnings. The movie was a surprise hit with an all-star cast. Not a whole lot of people were expecting a lot from it, but it has clearly found its niche. The mystery even earned Rian Johnson his first ever Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay. Along with Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Shannon led the strong ensemble cast in the first installment.
