Rian also wrote on Friday: ‘I love everything about whodunnits, but one of the things I love most is how malleable the genre is. 

‘There’s a whole tonal spectrum from Carr to Christie, and getting to explore that range is one of the most exciting things about making Benoit Blanc movies.

‘We’re about to go into production on the 3rd one, and I’m very, very excited to share the title, which gives a little hint of where it’s going.’ 

In October, Johnson has teased that the third Knives Out film is ‘coming along’.

The director said that he has most of the key details in mind for the picture that he is now able to work on again after the Hollywood writers’ strike ended.

Rian told The Wrap: ‘It’s coming along. I obviously couldn’t work during the strike, and now that it’s over, I’m diving in full force, and so it’s coming along.

‘I’ve got the premise, I’ve got the setting, I’ve got what the movie is in my head. It’s just a matter of writing the damn thing.’

Netflix purchased the rights to the second and third Knives Out movies in a $450 million deal in 2021 but Johnson previously suggested that even more pictures could be made.

Speaking to Total Film magazine, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi director said: ‘As long as the two of us are still having fun, and as long as we can continue to make these truly new experiences each time, and find new ways to challenge ourselves.

‘The second we feel like we’re repeating ourselves, or just turning a crank on a machine, we’ll stop. Because to me, the whole conception of this whole series is the same way Agatha Christie did it with her books – we’re doing something new and surprising every time.’

Johnson previously explained that the third film will be ‘very, very different’ from the 2022 sequel Glass Onion.

The filmmaker said: ‘I’ve got a big cloud of ideas, but it hasn’t all snapped into focus yet. It’s exciting, though, and it’s very, very different from this one. That’s what I’m excited about.’
