In an interview with The Jess Cagle Show (via Joblo), director Rian Johnson said that he’s likely to have a different setting and mystery for his upcoming sequel to Knives Out. He added that he “doesn’t even think of it as a sequel.”

He said: “The same way Agatha Christie wrote a bunch of Poirot novels, we can do that with Blanc and keep making new mysteries, you know, whole new cast, whole new location, whole new mystery, it’s just another Beniot Blanc mystery. There’s so many different things you could do with it. You look at Agatha Christie’s books for example, it’s not like every single one is a mansion, and a family, and a library, and a detective. Besides settings, she also explored a bunch of different sub-genres, And Then They Were None is essentially a slasher film, it’s basically a horror movie; The ABC Murders is kind of like a proto-serial killer movie in a way. She found a very different narrative way into each of them.
