Daniel Craig he responded to fan calls Muppets join him in the next installment of w Knives outside series.
glass onionthe sequel to the original Knives Out debuted on Netflix just before Christmas and has already gained massive popularity on the streaming service.
Because of this, people have already started speculating which stars could join Daniel in the third film in the franchise.
And with the festive release time of movie number two, many fans of the movie he already had the Muppets in his brainsuggesting the gang could be ideal partners for the former James Bond actor when Benoit Blanc next stars…
During an on-screen Q&A with the full cast of Glass Onion, the director Rian Johnson was asked if every Knives Out movie would feature “terrible people in beautiful places”.
“It’s our daily bread,” he joked, and Leslie Odom Jr introduced the popular suggestion that Benoit Blanc with the Muppets would be the next movie.
“That’s a pretty good idea,” Rian replied, and Daniel agreed, “It’s a really good idea!”
However, in an interview with the official Netflix publication Tudum, Rian admitted that fans probably shouldn’t get their hopes up.
“It’s a joke that I thought was pretty brilliant, and I ended up really giving up [it] some serious thought
“As much as I take the murder mystery genre seriously, I take the Muppet movie genre seriously.”
Unfortunately, Rian concluded, “You can have a Benoit Blanc secret where the Muppets are, but they’ll feel out of place. Or you can have a Muppets movie starring Benoit Blanc, but it will look like a Muppets movie.
“I wouldn’t want to compromise with any of them. And it seems to me that in order to do it right and make it work, you would have to make a choice and compromise with one or the other.
“If I ever make a Muppets movie, I just want to make a great Muppets movie.”
For anyone looking for new Muppet content in 2023, we’ve got good news.
Later this year, the new series The Muppets Mayhem will debut on Disney+, taking the form of a mockumentary series centered around the band The Electric Mayhem from the Muppet Theater.
