The Knives Out franchise is expanding in a huge way!

Netflix is closing on a deal to make not one, but two sequels to the 2019 hit movie Knives Out, which would be directed by Rian Johnson and will star Daniel Craig once again, Deadline reported Wednesday (March 31).

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as Benoit Blanc. Rian wrote the original movie, and has written the sequels.

Sources say the deal will be worth more than $400 million, making it one of the biggest streamer movie deals in history.

The first film cost $40 million, and brought in a global gross of $311 million.

The first of the two planned sequels will begin shooting on June 28 in Greece, and casting for the movie will start soon.

One of the film’s big stars revealed they almost passed on the role.

Gemma Arterton Reveals She Still Receives Criticism for Playing a 'Bond Girl,' Explains Why She Took 2008 Role

Gemma Arterton is speaking out about her role as a “Bond Girl” in 2008′s Quantum of Solace alongside Daniel Craig and seems to express some regret about accepting the role as she is now saying there is “so much wrong with Bond women.”

“At the beginning of my career, I was poor as a church mouse and I was happy just to be able to work and earn a living,” Gemma told The Sun. “I still get criticism for accepting Quantum of Solace, but I was 21, I had a student loan, and you, know, it was a Bond film.”

She added, “But as I got older I realized there was so much wrong with Bond women.”

In the film, Bond seduces her character in a hotel room. About the scene, Gemma said, “Strawberry should have just said no, really, and worn flat shoes.”

A few months ago, Gemma told The Telegraph, “I can’t really remember what’s in it or what I did, but I know I wouldn’t choose a role like that now,” she said. “Because she was funny and she was sweet, but she didn’t really have anything to do – or a backstory.”

The next Bond film will be released next year.

Daniel Craig Honors Iconic Bond Actor Sean Connery After His Death

Daniel Craig, the current actor playing James Bond, is paying tribute to the late actor Sean Connery, who just passed away at the age of 90.

Connery is widely considered to be the best James Bond actor of all time and he starred in six 007 movies, beginning with Dr. No in 1962.

“It is with such sadness that I heard of the passing of one of the true greats of cinema,” Daniel said in a statement (via Variety). “Sir Sean Connery will be remembered as Bond and so much more. He defined an era and a style. The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in mega watts; he helped create the modern blockbuster. He will continue to influence actors and film-makers alike for years to come. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Wherever he is, I hope there is a golf course.”

Daniel‘s final appearance in the Bond series will be in the upcoming movie No Time to Die, which was supposed to be released in April 2020. The film has been delayed to April 2021 due to the pandemic.

James Bond Studio Wanted $600 Million to Put 'No Time to Die' on Streaming Instead of a Theatrical Release

A new report is revealing the amount of money it would have taken to get the upcoming James Bond movie No Time to Die to skip theaters for a streaming-only release.

The movie was supposed to be released back in April 2020, but the release date was pushed back until November 2020 right at the start of the pandemic. Now, it has been pushed back again until April 2021.

With some movies opting for streaming releases instead of going to theaters, MGM reportedly considered the possibility of selling the film to a streaming service.

“The studio was said to be looking for a deal of roughly $600 million — a price tag that was deemed too rich for two of the free-spending streaming services,” Variety reported.

Apple, Netflix, and some other streaming services were reportedly in the mix for the possible acquisition.

A rep for MGM told Variety, “We do not comment on rumors. The film is not for sale. The film’s release has been postponed until April 2021 in order to preserve the theatrical experience for moviegoers.”

The producer of the Bond movies has spoken out about casting the next Bond.
