Now, in a new interview with Variety, director Rian Johnson has briefly commented on plans for the sequel. As expected Johnson is looking to bring Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc back and surround him with a new mystery and a new cast.

“It’s going to be Daniel (Craig) playing Benoit Blanc, the detective. Other than that, all bets are off. It’s a totally new cast,” Johnson said at the Oscars. He continued, “I want everybody! Just point. Throw a rock on this red carpet and you’ll hit someone that I want in the movie,” Johnson said.

Are you excited to see the further adventures of Benoit Blanc?

Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick,Looper,Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect.  When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate.

Rian Johnson updates on his STAR WARS trilogy

It’s been a while since we had an update on Rian Johnson’s Star Wars trilogy. Fans will remember that following the release of the divisive The Last Jedi it was announced that Johnson would be helming a series of films set outside the main storyline of the franchise.

In a new interview with Observer, Johnson explained crafting the new films’ storylines and he additionally confirmed that his movies will indeed remain entirely separate from the rest of the universe.

“I think that the fun and challenging part of it is to dive in, figure out what’s exciting and then figure out what it’s going to be,” said Johnson. “We’re doing something that steps beyond the legacy characters. What does that look like? To me, the blue sky element of it is what was most striking about it. I know the way that I’m coming at it and what’s fun about it for everyone in George Lucas’ films is figuring out, ‘what’s the next step?’ It really makes you think and figure out what the essence of Star Wars is for me and what that will look like moving forward.”

Are you still excited to see Johnson continue to explore the world of Star Wars?

Star Wars (Disney/Lucasfilm)

Rian Johnson debunks rumours his STAR WARS trilogy is DOA

Late last night rumours began to circulate that Rian Johnson’s planned Star Wars trilogy was being cancelled by the studio. Unsubstantiated reports claimed that following the lacklustre fan response to The Last Jedi and Solo‘s failure at the box office, the new trilogy was to be indefinitely postponed.

Following the news fans began to bombard the director on his social media accounts looking for a comment.

Eventually Johnson responded to a fan confirming that he is still working on the trilogy. Work on the movies began following their formal announcement back in November of 2017.

With the rumour debunked all eyes now turn back to when the first of these movies may arrive in cinemas.

Are you interested in a whole new trilogy masterminded by Johnson?

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ crosses $1B worldwide

The inevitable has happened: Star Wars: The Last Jedi has crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office. Taking only 18 days to cross the landmark that makes it the fourth fastest film to do so in history.
