Knives Out 3: The Next Benoit Blanc Whodunnit Gets a Title Reveal

Knives Out 3: The Next Benoit Blanc Whodunnit Gets a Title Reveal

We may never get that Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy that was announced, but it does seem that the Last Jedi director is happy enough with his Knives Out franchise with Netflix.

After the success of Glass Onion, Netflix has now revealed the title of the next Knives Out Mystery:

We don’t have any actual clips for Wake Up Dead Man, but we do have Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc delivering voice over:

“In the beginning the knives came out, then behold, the glass was shattered, but my most dangerous case yet is about to be revealed…”

With Glass Onion having a very different story from Knives Out, Johnson talks about how Wake Up is going to differentiate itself from the rest of the series, saying that it will be an homage to a very diverse genre in filmmaking. Johnson tells Variety:

“I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is… There’s a whole tonal spectrum from Carr to Christie, and getting to explore that range is one of the most exciting things about making Benoit Blanc movies. We’re about to go into production on the 3rd one, and I’m very, very excited to share the title, which gives a little hint of where it’s going.”

It’s definitely no mystery that Johnson is really getting into the whodunit genre. Besides the Knives Out movies, he also has his series Poker Face starring Natasha Lyonne which is also in the same genre (and it got a Season 2 renewal from Peacock).

We don’t know which will come out first, but hopefully we can get our first teasers for Wake Up Dead Man and Poker Face Season 2 before the year ends.

Watch out for Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery when it releases on Netflix sometime in 2025.
