AceShowbiz - Filmmaker Rian Johnson's hit whodunnit "Knives Out" is set for a sequel.
The film, starring Daniel Craig as a crack detective investigating a family murder, landed Johnson an Original Screenplay Oscar nomination. It also became a box office hit at the end of last year (2019), hauling in close to $300 million (£232 million) worldwide.
And now Lionsgate studio bosses have officially greenlighted a follow-up.
Johnson is keen to bring back Craig's private investigator, Benoit Blanc, for the follow-up.
"I had such a good time making it, such a great time working with Daniel, and now just seeing that audiences are responding to it, the idea of continuing it on seems like it would just be a blast," the director previously told Deadline.
