Daniel Craig Would Love To Keep Making ‘Knives Out’ Movies

Knives Out Daniel Craig

If you’re a fan of the Knives Out movies, then we have some good news for you! Daniel Craig has confirmed that he wants to keeping making them as well.

Craig, 54, has reprised the role of detective Benoit Blanc for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Daniel is eager to keep working with director Rian Johnson.

“If he keeps writing them, I’ll keep doing them. That’s what makes it easy then, he’s such a wonderful writer that it’s there on the page for me to do.” Craig confessed to Variety.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is largely separate from the 2019 original, Knives Out. And Rian Johnson is keen to keep surprising his audience in the coming years.

“Part of the fun of these things is the idea that they’re not sequels. They’re completely new books and they’re completely new stories.” Johnson says.

“To me, the idea for the next one – and I’m going to try to stay in this state of mind as I write it – it’s not about trying to top the previous one, it’s about just trying to create something that surprises us and thus hopefully will surprise the audience and thus delight the audience.” he adds.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is Bigger Than Johnson Planned

Meanwhile, Johnson recently revealed that Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery became “slightly bigger” in scale than he originally planned. The director wrote and helmed the original Knives Out movie. And he admits that the follow-up project is distinctly different in terms of tone and scale.

Johnson, who also directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017, said, “It had a very different narrative gambit to it in that it was trying something different and unique, and tonally, I was going to go where the characters led me. Which, given the characters in the movie, ended up to a slightly bigger place.”
