Knives Out Director Teases Shot From Sequel On Twitter

Rian Johnson has released the first teaser for his upcoming film Knives Out 2 with a GIF on Twitter.

Knives Out 2 is a sequel to the delightful murder mystery Knives Out. It stars Daniel Craig, reprising his role as Benoit Blanc alongside a totally new cast.

The director, Rian Johnson, posted the GIF below on his Twitter account. This is the first glimpse of the sequel we’ve seen, and suggests a very different location to the first. If you’ve watched Knives Out you’ll know it was mostly set in a mansion, but in the teaser we can see characters boarding a boat on the water.

What To Expect In Knives Out 2

The cast of the new film is almost entirely different to the first film. It stars Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Jessica Henwick, Ethan Hawke, Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Madelyn Cline and of course Daniel Craig as the famous detective Benoit Blanc.

After the twists and turns in the original, it’s fair to say we can expect some similarly surprising events in this sequel. Until we get a trailer, it’s anyone’s guess what the story could be about. But if you want my guess, I’m thinking there’s probably going to be a murder at some point.

At an auction in 2021, Netflix outbid other studios to purchase the rights to Knives Out for $469 million. Filming began in summer last year on an island in Greece.
