At a Golden Globes pre-party on Saturday, he announced that he’s writing a sequel in which Daniel Craig’s Southern detective Benoit Blanc investigates a new case. 

Johnson’s producing partner Ram Bergman also tells THR that Craig is eager to reprise the role, saying “Daniel had so much fun doing it, and he wants to do more.” 

Knives Out’s worldwide gross currently stands at $247 million.
