Knives Out 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, and we've finally got a confirmed title.

The sequel has been officially titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and in a thread explaining the title, writer/director Rian Johnson praised Agatha Christie for the fact she "never tread water creatively".

"It wasn't just settings or murder methods, she was constantly stretching the genre conceptually," he continued.

"When I made Knives Out, that's what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc – to emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, reason for being… and (ta dah) title."

Unlike the first movie, the sequel will be coming to Netflix after the streaming giant picked up the rights to Knives Out 2 and Knives Out 3 in a mega deal last year. We got a (brief) first look at the sequel in February 2022 as part of a Netflix sizzle reel.

The sequel does have something in common with the first movie though: an A-List cast that's absolutely stacked.

Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Kate Hudson, Jessica Henwick, Ethan Hawke, Janelle Monáe and Madelyn Cline make up the new group of suspects, although we're not sure yet who they're playing.

Daniel Craig is, of course, returning as Benoit Blanc, but it's not yet clear if anybody else from the first movie will be coming back. Back in October 2020, Ana de Armas seemed to confirm she wasn't returning, unfortunately.

We're sure there will be plenty to enjoy in Knives Out 2 though, as Bautista teased in August 2021 that the sequel will be "as good, if not better, than the first one". Bold claim.

"I think the characters are just so much more colourful. I think people are really going to dig this. The characters are just so great. They're so different. Everybody's cast so well," he continued.

"I was working with a couple of my castmates and was mesmerised by their performances and just how well they've adapted into these characters. I think the characters in this are even more quirky than the first one."

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will be released on Netflix later this year.
