We’re finally going to get the highly anticipated to 2019’s Knives Out this winter!
It was announced this week that the sequel entitled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery would be hitting Netflix on December 23.

The film stars Edward Norton (American History X, The Incredible Hulk), Janelle Monáe (Hidden Figures, Harriet), Kathryn Hahn (We’re the Millers, Bad Moms), Leslie Odom Jr.(Red Tails, The Many Saints of Newark), Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Gray Man), Madelyn Cline (This Is the Night), Kate Hudson (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Bride Wars) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Dune).
On top of writing and directing the film, Rian Johnson also produced the film alongside Ram Bergman (who also produced Knives Out with him). Tom Karnowski served as the executive producer for the mystery film.
