Rian Johnson Wants To Make A Key Change To The Knives Out Franchise After Glass Onion


When Rian Johnson made Knives Out the movie was such a hit that it spawned not one but two additional sequels, transforming the single mystery into a bona fide franchise. Now two of the films have been released, and the sequel, Glass Onion, was just as big a hit as the first. However, Johnson now says there is one big thing that he hopes will make the third film in the series very different. He wants to change the subtitle.

The full title of the second movie, at least from a promotional standpoint was Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, which doesn’t actually make a lot of sense, since the two films have completely separate stories and characters, with only Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc appearing in both. While Johnson understands the need to include the Knives Out name the second time around, he tells the Filmcast that he hopes that the third movie will drop Knives Out and become A Benoit Blanc mystery. Johnson said…

The thing is, though, I totally get it. It’s not like this was done against my will or something. I completely understand it. Because after the first movie, I think people knew that they liked ‘Knives Out’ [but] they didn’t necessarily know it well enough to know who Benoit Blanc was. I think that would’ve gotten blank stares. And I wanted everyone who loved ‘Knives Out’ to know that [‘Glass Onion’] is the next one of those. So I absolutely 100% was on board and totally got it that we had to do that.
