Knives Out 2 Gets New Official Title – Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Ladies and gents the time is getting closer for Benoit Blanc will be with us once again with another case to solve. Today Netflix officially announce Knives Out 2 will official be called Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery!

Rian Johnson‘s Knives Out was an unexpected global hit film with Daniel Craig stealing the show with Detective Blanc. That film saw Detective Blanc investigate the murder of renowned murder novelist Harlan Thrombey with his outlandish family and staff the suspects.

Here’s the film’s logo/title

Very little is known about the sequel apart from the title and it will be set in Greece. Glass Onion is also the name of an 1968 Beatles song, could their be clues in the lyrics? Knives Out was also a song from Radiohead’s 2001 Amnesia album. Like any murder mystery it’s up to the detective to peel away the clues and find who is the culprit, peel like a onion.

One thing we can say is Rian Johnson is a great fan of Agatha Christie and these films are his homage to the celebrated writer. It looks like Glass Onion maybe set (or part set) on a boat, could this be his homage to Death On The Nile?

In the follow up to Rian Johnson’s KNIVES OUT, Detective Benoit Blanc travels to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery involving a new cast of colourful suspects.

That cast of suspects will include Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.

Netflix in regards of release date for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the streaming giants have said ‘Holiday Season’. I would not at all be surprised if this film gets a limited cinema release too, before it heads to the streaming channel.
