Benoit Blanc’s following secret is growing ever before better. Today, Knives Out supervisor Rian Johnson introduced the title for his follow up to the hit murder-mystery movie, showing up “this holiday”. According to a brand-new (and very brief) teaser dropped on the director’s Twitter today, the upcoming film is entitled Glass Onion– a name taken from the 1968 Beatles tune of the same name.

Johnson continues the fad of loaning movie titles from famous musicians with Glass Onion, having drawn ideas from the 2001 Radiohead song of the exact same name for Knives Out. If that formula continues to help Johnson, he remains in good luck– and why wouldn’t he be, with an actors that consists of returning celebrity Daniel Craig as Detective Benoit Blanc, along with Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monae, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Leslie Odom Jr., Dave Bautista, Madeline Cline, Jessica Henwick, and also Ethan Hawke?

In the string where he revealed the brand-new title, Johnson pointed out the most renowned mystery writer of them all as ideas for his Benoit Blanc stories: Agatha Christie. Best recognized for her service books like Murder on the Orient Express and also Death on the Nile– both of which have actually obtained movies of their own– Christie edited sixty investigator stories, and also Johnson cites her continuous imagination as something he desires:

“Something I love about Agatha Christie is how she never tread water creatively. I think there’s a misperception that her books use the same formula over and over, but fans know the opposite is true…It wasn’t just settings or murder methods, she was constantly stretching the genre conceptually. Under the umbrella of the whodunnit she wrote spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies, glam travelogues. When I made Knives Out, that’s what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc – to emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, reason for being… and (ta dah) title.”


He also teased “far more to come” in the very same thread, suggesting that probably we’ll obtain a launch date or trailer at some time soon. We were given a really brief peek into the movie’s Mediterranean establishing a couple of months back, however we have yet to get any kind of longer, concrete video footage or information on just what is taking Benoit Blanc to Greece of all areas.

Johnson is both directing and creating Glass Onion, which will certainly premiere on Netflix at some time this fall– we presume around Thanksgiving, offered the “holiday season” home window the brand-new intro revealed. Take a look at Johnson’s complete news below:
