As we gear up for the premiere of the second Knives Out movie, Glass Onion, in December 2022, news has started to come out about a third Knives Out, featuring Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc once more.
Knives Out 3 could dive into Benoit Blanc’s sexuality.
In press for Glass Onion, Johnson teased that the third film would dive into Blanc’s queerness, saying he’s “sure it’ll come into play” because it’s a big part of his character.
“If you watch the movie, I think it’s made explicit. In terms of exploring it, I mean, maybe, but with these movies, I mean, they’re not really about the detective’s sexuality. [But] it’s baked into the genre a little bit [when] the detective is kind of set outside the realm of the human drama that’s going on with the rest of the suspects, so I’m sure it’ll come into play because it’s a big part of who he is, obviously. It’s just a fact about his character.”
There will likely be an entirely new cast.
Just as the cast and mystery (with the exception of Daniel Craig’s Blanc) completely changed in Glass Onion, the third Knives Out will almost definitely feature an entirely new cast and no continuous mystery.
There’s no title or premiere date yet.
