Like many of us, I totally enjoyed “Knives Out” so I was very excited to see its sequel, “Glass Onion.” Have no fear folks, this is as intriguing as the first one but more fun! And yup, Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc is certified queer! That’s what writer/director Rian Johnson revealed in the film and confirmed when I talked to him in person for the world premiere of the sequel.
Johnson also talked about when he and Craig started thinking of a sequel to his murder mystery, the glass onion-like qualities of the film and his characters, and is he planning a threequel?
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” is now out in select theaters and will stream on Netflix on December 23.
Madelyn Cline, fresh from the success of “Outer Banks,” star as Whiskey, Dave Bautista’s Duke’s girlfriend while Jessica Henwick (“Love and Monsters,” “The Matrix Resurrections”) is Peg, Kate Hudson’s Birdie Jay’s assistant.
I had a great time talking to the actresses about their roles, and working on the set of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.”
