Daniel Craig spoke to Empire recently about his upcoming film 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' which will launch on Netflix at the end of December (and in select theatres). Asked about how he approached keeping the sequel fresh, Craig explained that he leaned on his James Bond experience.
"I’ve spent the past 15 years of my life trying to do that in a franchise, so I’m not afraid of it. If you’ve got the right people in the room and the right talent, then you can do it. Rian’s a genius writer and doesn’t want to repeat [himself]. Neither do we want to let people down; we want audiences to enjoy the world that we created in the first one and believe in this one."
For Craig, the real challenge was slipping back into Blanc’s Kentucky-fried tones – a surprise and a delight in the first film, but one that could easily tip over into caricature if not carefully calibrated. “I went away to work with an accent coach for three or four months before we started shooting [Glass Onion]. I’d forgotten the accent and I didn’t want to do a pastiche. I wanted to make it as grounded and as anchored in reality as possible.”
