In 2005 Rian Johnson formed the idea of Knives Out and chose to make the film after his Looper movie finished. But, because he was participating in Star Wars: The Last Jedi till 2017, he couldn’t write the cinematograph of Knives out. After that, in 2018, the movie was officially announced and sold to distributors at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. The movie took only three months to complete filming, from October to December 2018.
On September 7, 2019, at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, the American mystery film had its world premiere. Lionsgate Films released the movie on November 27 theatrically in the United States. A positive response was received from critics and audiences for the movie. The movie was nominated thrice at the 77th Golden Globe Awards, followed by more at 73rd British Academy Film Awards and 92nd Academy Awards. Netflix paid $469 million for the rights to two sequels in the March of 2021.
Both the sequels are directed and written by Johnson. It has been officially confirmed that on December 23, 2022, the first sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, will be released. The audiences loved the first film for the outstanding performances by the lead cast members alongside the engaging screenplay.
