At the world premiere of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” Daniel Craig said he was “very fortunate” to work with Queen Elizabeth, who passed away on Thursday.
Craig said on the red carpet at Toronto International Film: “I’m so lucky to be involved in something, the Olympics, and to work with her on something that I think a lot of people enjoy, enjoy. and laugh. Festival.
Screenwriter-director Rian Johnson thanked another majesty, “queen of murder mysteries Agatha Christie,” whom he says every installment of the series draws inspiration from.
“Knives Out” grossed over $300 million at the worldwide box office, proving that fans are excited about Johnson’s whodunit role. Johnson said he hopes to “scratch the itch” with the sequel.
Producer Ram Bergman said: “It has a sense of the present. It solves the problems that we are dealing with every day.” “Studios and filmmakers, for whatever reason, think that no one cares (for the genre), but really everyone.”
“Glass Onion” follows a similar formula as Southern detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) sets out to solve a new mystery, this time on a Greek island. In Greece, Craig encounters a group of quirky characters starring stars including Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, Leslie Odom Jr. and Janelle Monáe.
The stars are tight-lipped about the plot, not wanting to reveal it to anyone, but Kate Hudson said she would love to play her character Birdie Jay.
“It’s like putting on a different skin and I really love every second of it.”
