Already wondering if there will be a Knives Out 3? You’re not alone. The good news is that writer/director Rian Johnson is already making it known that he wants to make a third film.

While doing press for the release of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, producer Ram Bergman is already speaking about Johnson’s desire for another film. However, he’s also noting that it’s going a third film will be a “big challenge”.

“Well, it’s a good question. The first one, (Johnson) had the idea for years in his head. But he only put pen to paper like late January, and by the end of October, we were filming it, which is super fast.” Bergman reveals in an interview with ComicBook.com.

“This movie, he really did not have an idea. He just stopped thinking and we were… From the moment he started really writing it, like, nine months later, a year later, we were filming,” Bergman continues. “So, the good thing, he is very motivated to go do the next one as quickly as possible. But, you know, we’ll see how fast he is but this is gonna be a challenge. It’s gonna be a bigger challenge. So we’ll see how long it’s gonna take.”

Rian Johnson, 48, previously confessed that he is yet to start writing the third film and needs to work out both a plot and a setting for Daniel Craig’s sleuth Benoit Blanc to crack his next case.

“Oh God, I mean, I have to, I still have to start writing ‘Knives Out 3′,” Johnson admits. “I gotta figure out what the next Benoit Blanc mystery is, what it’s called, where it’s set. So, I got a lot of work to do. So, TBD, I don’t wanna give myself a deadline yet ’cause I definitely won’t meet it.”

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery arrives in theaters on November 23, 2022, and debuts on Netflix on December 23, 2022
