If Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond really does wrap with No Time To Die, he could be starting a new series with 'Star Wars' director Rian Johnson.
Johnson spoke to Uproxx about their new film 'Knives Out' (Johnson directing, Craig starring as the detective) which is an all-star murder mystery.
Do you think you’ll do another Knives Out-type movie?
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. 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.
Wouldn’t that be great if that’s your legacy? Like 30 years from now, “the Agatha Christie of our time.”
Who just dabbles in other genres.
People would say, “Isn’t it weird he did Star Wars? Then he pumped out 79 murder mystery movies.”
I would be so thrilled. And I don’t want to jinx it by starting into it, because I want to see how this does but … yeah. Yeah. I’ve been crossing my fingers I get to do more of these.
