The Toronto International Film Festival has announced today that Rian Johnson‘s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will have its world premiere at the 2022 edition of the Film Festival. No details on a specific date for the premiere have been given, but it’s certainly exciting news considering the fact that Knives Out also had its world premiere at TIFF in 2019.
The sequel will release on Netflix later this year. Written and directed by Johnson, it will star Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista and Ethan Hawke.
