Rian Johnson has revealed that the next movie in the Knives Out franchise will take place in the United States.

Knives Out was released in 2019 and told the story of Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), a private detective investigating the death of a wealthy businessman.

It featured an impressive ensemble cast, as in addition to Craig we saw Ana de Armas, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Toni Colette, Don Johnson, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell.

Knives Out received critical acclaim for its acting, directing and screenplay, with the screenplay being nominated for an Academy Award.

It was also a commercial success, earning $311 million on a budget of $40m.

In March of 2021, it was announced that Netflix had purchased the rights for two Knives Out sequels for $469m, with Johnson returning to direct and Craig returning as Benoit Blanc.

The sequel was called Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and was released just before Christmas in 2022. It takes place on a private island in Greece which is a deviation from the America-set first movie.

For the third movie, which has already been confirmed, Johnson says Blanc will return to America.

"I want it to be in America," he told Insider.

"There's a lot of tempting things of going to — Paris or the Alps — but I feel it's really important that these are American movies.

"Bringing it back to somewhere a little closer to home I think could be a good thing for the next one."
