Queer Detective Benoit Blanc Returns in ‘Knives Out 3’

LGBTQ Entertainment News

Rian Johnson has finally revealed the title of the highly anticipated third Knives Out movie! Get ready for Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery. Production is about to kick off, and we couldn’t be more excited.

A Sneak Peek at the New Adventure

Daniel Craig is back as the charismatic detective Benoit Blanc, and this time, he’s diving into his most dangerous case yet. The teaser video features Blanc’s voiceover: “In the beginning, the knives came out. Then behold, the glass was shattered. But my most dangerous case yet is about to be revealed.”

What’s in a Name?

Johnson, the mastermind behind the Knives Out series, gave us some juicy details about the title. “I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is,” Johnson explained. He hinted that the title offers “a little hint of where it’s going.”

With a nod to classic mystery authors from Carr to Christie, Johnson is ready to take us on another thrilling ride with Benoit Blanc. This time, the movie might have a supernatural twist that sets it apart from Knives Out and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

Filming Starts Soon

Earlier this year, Johnson’s production company, T-Street, hinted that Knives Out 3 would begin shooting later this year. But surprise! Filming is starting sooner than expected. Johnson promised, “more to come very soon,” so we’re eagerly awaiting the star-studded cast announcement.

The Queer Detective


Johnson previously confirmed that Benoit Blanc is queer in an interview at the London Film Festival. While the first film subtly hinted at this, it’s now official. “Yes, he obviously is,” Johnson said. In Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, we met Blanc’s live-in partner, played by Hugh Grant. 

So now we have one question: Will Hugh be returning? 

The Countdown Begins

As production gears up for Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery, the excitement is palpable. With a fresh, thrilling storyline, the third installment promises to be an unforgettable ride. Get ready to sleuth alongside Benoit Blanc once more – this time, with even more twists and turns.

Stay tuned for more updates, and keep your detective hats on – you never know what secrets might be unveiled next!

More From Craig

Craig is also set to star in Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of William S. Burroughs’s novel Queer, alongside Outer Banks star Drew Starkey. This film, exploring an American expat’s obsession with a young Navy serviceman in 1950s Mexico, promises to capture the essence of Burroughs’s writing. The star-studded cast includes Lesley Manville, Jason Schwartzman, and Henry Zaga.
