Knives OutEventually, he was nominated for three Golden Globes as well as writer Rian JohnsonOscar nomination for best screenplay. Johnson spoke out about his plans to create more stories that stand on their merits even before the murder movie was a success.
“I’ll tell you, the truth is I had such a great time working with Daniel Craig and I had so much fun doing this on every level, from writing it to making it,” Johnson said in an interview for UproxxSeptember 2019. “I’ve never really been interested in doing sequels, but this, the idea of doing more of these with Daniel as his character, is not sequels. It’s just what Agatha Christie did. It’s just coming up with a whole new mystery, a whole new location, all new cast, whole new mechanics of the appeal of a mystery and everything. It’d be a blast.”

She also explored many subgenres. She found a different narrative way into each of them.”
