Rian Johnson’s Knives Out was one of the most beloved movies of last year, earning tons of praise from critics and audiences alike, and even scoring an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Last week, it was officially announced that the movie would be getting a sort-of sequel. The director plans to create at least one more film starring Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc, which will put the character in a whole new mystery. In fact, it could even establish an entire franchise. Yesterday, the official Twitter account for Knives Out decided to ask fans on the social media site for title suggestions. The results were hilarious and caught the attention of Johnson himself.
“I have been reading these all day and gotten zero writing done,” Johnson wrote.

Baby It’s Knife Time: This is Knives Out 2, The Movie

“In my mind, I don’t even think of it in terms of like a sequel… Ever since we started working on this I was like, look, if we can keep this going, the same way Agatha Christie wrote a bunch of Poirot novels. I mean, do that with Blanc and keep making more mysteries. Whole new cast, whole new location, whole new mystery. It’s just another Benoit Blanc mystery and it seems like there’s just so many different things you can do with it, you know? It seems like it’d be really fun.”
Based on this explanation, it’s unlikely the title of the film will actually use the words “Knives Out,” which is why this is probably our favorite title suggestion for future Blanc films:
Yo, @KnivesOut. I got you.
