    Variety:

    Netflix is plunking down an astounding $450 million for the rights to “Knives Out 2” and “Knives Out 3,” the next two follow-ups to the 2019 murder mystery, sources tell Variety. The films will reunite director Rian Johnson and star Daniel Craig, who teamed up so memorably on the first detective story.

    Hoping I can buy this to add to my personal library at some point. One thing I hate about all these going to streaming services. Would love to out right own The Mandalorian.

    They've been planning this basically since before the first movie came out with Daniel Craig doing the same role with a brand new cast and mystery. I think it sounds like a good formula personally but yeah the first one was solid.

    It's always on the front page of Prime Video so I end up throwing it on a lot to have on in the background. So solid and it still makes me laugh every time.
