I was told during last night’s Lionsgate’s pre-Golden Globe party that a Knives Out sequel is in the works. It would focus on Daniel Craig‘s Hercule Poirot-like character, debonair private detective Benoit Blanc. The idea would be to launch a franchise that would just keep going and going and going and going and going and going and going. Director-writer Rian Johnson is already at work on the followup. I could have reported this as few hours ago, dammit, but now The Hollywood Reporter has scooped everyone. Fuck a duck. Knives Out has made something like $245 million worldwide thus fair, and it still has legs.
