In a recent interview, the writer-and-director of the film, Rian Johnson has shared that he is ready to make a sequel of the hit movie and that he is coming up with ideas for another part and hopes to turn the whodunit blockbuster into a franchise for Lionsgate.
Rian, who also directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, said, “I would love to. We'll see how this one does, you know. But if this movie does alright, if I can get together with Daniel every few years and do a new Benoit Blanc mystery? New location; new cast; new mystery. It'd be so much fun.”
He further added, “For me, I had so much fun doing this film with Daniel I would love to make another one of these. I would love to get together again with him and do another Benoit Blanc mystery. This could be a trilogy and beyond, I mean Agatha Christie didn't stop at a trilogy so let's keep making mysteries man.”

The plot of the first film revolves around a detective (played by Daniel), who is sent to investigate the murder of a renowned crime novelist and features an all-star ensemble cast with actors likes of Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette and Ana de Armas.
The first film was a super hit and raked $250 million at the worldwide box office. Safe to say, if these geniuses do plan a film again, it shall be a blockbuster too!
