“I have to write it! Do you have any ideas?” he joked when asked about the plot of the new sequel.

He confirmed Daniel Craig will be back as Benoit Blanc.

“In my mind, I don’t even think of it in terms of a sequel…ever since we started working on this, I was like, look, if we can keep this going the same way Agatha Christie wrote a bunch of Poirot novels and do that with Blanc and keep making mysteries. Whole new cast, Whole new location, whole new mystery…there’s so many different things you can do with it,” he said.

Daniel Craig Confirms Whether or Not He Has American Passport

Daniel Craig is opening up about his citizenship status.

The 51-year-old British actor, known for playing James Bond, spoke to any rumors at the premiere of his latest film Knives Out in Los Angeles.

“Everybody in this country’s an immigrant,” he told People. “That’s what the country’s built upon. We can’t forget it. We can’t just dismiss it … but it’s difficult, and it takes thought, and it takes smart people thinking about it instead of dividing people along party lines … and also along this anger that kind of builds up.”

“It needs to be discussed … and that’s hard,” he continued. “Good things are hard to do. I’m incredibly proud to be part of this, to have an American passport and call myself an immigrant in this country.”

“I’m part of an amazing period in history that created this country and I’m proud to be a part of it,” he added.

Knives Out premieres on November 27. Watch the trailer!
