The film is reportedly set against the backdrop of Greece, where Detective Blanc has gone to unfold the layers of a new mystery involving a cast of multiple suspects. Now, talking about the film’s unique title, it is revealed by the director that the same is based on a popular 1968 Beatles song. He further said, “I’m always fishing for something fun that Blanc can grab onto as an overwrought metaphor that he can beat to death.” He further added, “This is all in plain sight from the very start. So, the idea of glass came to me, something that’s clear,” as published in the ET.
Rian Johnson also said, “I literally got out my iPhone and searched my music library with the word ‘glass.’ There’s got to be some good glass songs. I was like, “Oh, is it a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a glass man?” The first thing that came up, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, is ‘Glass Onion.’” For the unversed, the Knives Out sequel is going to be released on Netflix on December 23, 2022.
