People Are Suggesting Hilarious "Knives Out 2" Title Ideas on Twitter
The Knives Out Twitter account asked for title suggestions for the sequel, and Twitter delivered.
You've probably heard the exciting news that there's a Knives Out sequel in the works. Director and screenwriter Rian Johnson told Variety on Sunday that while Daniel Craig would be reprising his role as Det. Benoit Blanc, the movie would feature a new cast, setting, and mystery plot. So, though we won't be seeing Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, and other fan favorites from the original in the sequel, Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter that he'd start crafting the new script with new characters this week. And now, he has some extra inspiration for what to call the sequel. On Tuesday, the movie's official Twitter account asked for suggestions for the Knives Out 2 title, and the hilarious responses started rolling in.

And some suggestions were just plain trippy.
It's gonna end up being KNIIVES OUT when everyone knows it should be KNIVES OWT and the OWT is reversed in the reflection of a knife so it spells TWO on the other side
