KNIVES OUT 3 Will Reportedly Begin Filming This Year


Who doesn’t miss Detective Benoit Blanc? We know we can’t wait to see more of him, his accent, his outfits, and his uncanny knack to solve a mystery. Knives Out is just one of those movie franchises that universally works. In a room full of folks with disparate tastes, a Knives Out movie will often please the lot. And so, after Knives Out 2, a.k.a. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, we felt excited to hear there would be more Knives Out mysteries on the way. Knives Out 3 is still in its early stages, but a new report from Deadline cites that it will begin filming this year.


Deadline notes, “T-Street is gearing up to make the third installment of the Benoit Blanc franchise for Netflix later this year. The yet to be titled film will again be written and directed by [Rian] Johnson, who helmed the franchise predecessors Knives Out and Glass Onion. Daniel Craig will return in the lead role of the sleuth.”

Well, we couldn’t have Knives Out 3 without Daniel Craig or Rian Johnson. In October 2023, Johnson commented about the progress of the third movie to The Wrap. He shared, “It’s coming along. I obviously couldn’t work during the strike, and now that it’s over, I’m diving in full force, and so it’s coming along. I’ve got the premise, I’ve got the setting, I’ve got what the movie is in my head. It’s just a matter of writing the damn thing.”

We have to wonder if he’s got a cast for Knives Out 3 in his head as well. While we wait for “later this year” to arrive, we have plenty of time to speculate on who we might want to see appear. We’ve seen some fans out there calling loudly for Ayo Edebiri, and we wholeheartedly co-sign on that choice. Others note that Daniel Radcliffe would be a great fit. We also have to agree there. In the meantime, we guess we’ll just have to wait for the mysteries of Knives Out 3 to unfold in their own time.
