The Knives Out Sequel seems to be made for the Internet
He is a monitor a weekly column Dedicated to everything that happens in the world of WIRED culture, from movies to memes, from TV to Twitter.
For starters, the casting ad. Three of them, actually. Let’s start with the last one. On Thursday, Deadline reported Kathryn Hahn tracking is set to merge Knives, Director Rian JohnsonIt’s a tremendous clarity for 2019. This news came reports that Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista and Edward Norton they were lined up to star in a series of sequels being made as part of a two-film deal with Netflix It is reported to be worth $ 450 million. A news of one Knives 2 the film alone wasn’t exciting enough, this latest update is pretty enlightening.
It also proves that this film is likely to do what it should: turn on the damn internet. In 2019 again, Knives sleeping was a kind of success. He made less than $ 27 million in the opening weekend, but he did win more than $ 310 million worldwide, partly thanks to word of mouth and genuine goodwill. The people he saw defended him hard. He was inspired by memes, and Chris Evans had an avid fondness for the corded sweaters he wore in the film. (See: #LabanakOutChallenge.) In short, he was loved.
No wonder then that Netflix is generating a huge amount of money to secure its sequels. The streaming service works well with the favorite cults he loves on the internet. But, say, unlike Office, Netflix may own these sequels directly because it has paid for them. It’s likely, though, that Netflix doesn’t have everything to do with the movie franchise. After the agreement was made public, who acted @KnivesOut Twitter account – posted a rather dark message not being part of it Knives 2, leads some call Netflix can immediately hire a social media manager. (The original film was produced and distributed by Lionsgate and MPC and allegedly worked for one of them by Twitter maven.)
This is precisely the excitement that Netflix needs if it is to capitalize on its purchase. This brings us back to the casting. One, Monáe, Norton, Hahn and Bautista are great accessories for any actor. For another, they are all credible options. First Knives he was successful because many of the actors in his group managed to play a little against the type. He had a British Daniel Craig — literally James Bond — play a horrible detective in the South who tried to solve a potential murder. LaKeith Stanfield, an actress not known for playing central characters, was a central gumshoe made directly from Craig’s casting. He had Evans — literally the American captain — playing right and wrong. Michael Shannon was often disturbing Knivesyes, but he also had insecurity. Jamie Lee Curtis was Jamie Lee Curtis (there was no need to mix it up with perfection).
