Rian Johnson has announced that the previously untitled Knives Out sequel — set to star Daniel Craig, Janelle Monáe, Edward Norton, Dave Bautista and more — will be called Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

Daniel Craig is set to return as detective Benoit Blanc, and the film will reportedly see him travel to Greece to solve a mystery featuring a host of new characters. That's about all the details we've got at this point, but a good ol' international location change is always fun! 

Johnson wrote the script and will direct again. Alongside those new cast members mentioned above, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline and Kate Hudson are also set to star. 

In a series of tweets announcing the new film, Johnson talked about his love of famed mystery novelist Agatha Christie, and the way she wrote "spy thrillers, proto-slasher horrors, serial killer hunts, gothic romances, psychological character studies [and] glam travelogues" under the banner of the classic whodunnit. 

"When I made Knives Out, that's what excited me about the prospect of making more mysteries with Daniel as Benoit Blanc," he continued. "To emulate Christie and have every film be like a whole new book, with its own tone, ambition, reason for being… and (ta dah) title."
