Rian Johnson Announces ‘Knives Out 3’ Is Coming in 2025

Benoit Blanc and his indistinguishable accent are back to solve a new mystery in Rian Johnson’s third Knives Out film, titled Wake Up Dead Man.

In a teaser posted on X Friday morning, Johnson announced the title along with a tentative release date.

“In the beginning, the knives came out,” Daniel Craig narrates in the teaser. “Then, behold, the glass was shattered. But my most dangerous case yet is about to be revealed.”

Details have not been released, but we definitively know Craig is returning as renowned Detective Benoit Blanc. One thing we know for sure is the inevitable cast will be absolutely stacked. Between the first two films, we’ve seen knockout performances from Ana De Armas, Chris Evans, Janelle Monae, Toni Collette, Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn — you get the picture.

Following the sequel’s footsteps, the film will drop on Netflix in 2025. Despite the first film grossing $312 million at the box office, Netflix put out a limited theatrical release with Glass Onion. Let’s hope they give Wake Up Dead Man a better chance at the movies.
