The American mystery film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will come out in 2022. Rian Johnson wrote it and ran the show. He and Ram Bergman worked together to make it. It’s the follow-up to Knives Out, which came out in 2019. This is the second time Daniel Craig has played master detective Benoit Blanc.
This time, he is working on a new case. The ensemble cast includes actors like Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista.
Before the first one came out, Johnson had thought about making more movies with the Benoit Blanc character. The first distributor, Lionsgate, gave the green light for a sequel in 2020.
Glass Onion Plotline
Helen Brand hires Detective Benoit Blanc to find out how her sister, Cassandra “Andi” Brand, died during the COVID-19 pandemic. Andi was the CEO of Alpha, a tech company she started with Miles Bron.
After Andi didn’t agree to Miles releasing Klear, a hydrogen-based alternative fuel that could be dangerous, Miles kicked her out of the company and won a lawsuit against her.
Andi’s case didn’t work out because she couldn’t prove that the ideas that made Alpha what it is today were hers. Also, her and Miles’s old friends, like Alpha’s head scientist Lionel Toussaint.
Connecticut Governor Claire Debella, fashion designer Birdie Jay, and men’s rights streamer Duke Cody, all said that Andi didn’t come up with the ideas for Alpha.
Helen thinks that one of the five killed Andi because she later found the cocktail napkin on which Andi had written down the idea for Alpha. This would hurt Miles’ reputation and show that all five of them lied in court.
