Daniel Craig Rocks Long Locks in First Look of ‘Wake Up Dead Man’ – Rian Johnson’s Next Mystery Movie Revealed!

Los Angeles, California – Renowned actor Daniel Craig surprised fans with a new hairstyle in a sneak peek from director Rian Johnson’s upcoming mystery film. Johnson took to social media to share a picture marking the start of filming for “Wake Up Dead Man,” the third installment in the popular “Knives Out” series. The photo revealed Craig in character as Benoit Blanc, the eccentric Southern detective, dressed in a three-piece suit with a hat in hand.

Scheduled for release in 2025, “Wake Up Dead Man” will see Craig reprise his role alongside a star-studded cast that includes Josh O’Connor, Cailee Spaeny, Andrew Scott, Kerry Washington, Glenn Close, Jeremy Renner, Mila Kunis, Daryl McCormack, and Josh Brolin. Little is known about the plot of the film, but a teaser released by Johnson in May hinted at a thrilling new mystery for Blanc to solve.

In a statement, Johnson expressed his enthusiasm for the whodunit genre, emphasizing the flexibility it offers in storytelling. He teased that the title of the new film provides a glimpse into the direction the story will take, promising an exciting and unexpected narrative for fans of the franchise. “Wake Up Dead Man” is set to be part of Johnson’s lucrative deal with Netflix, following the success of “Knives Out” and its sequel “Glass Onion.”

While the first film in the series saw a theatrical release with Lionsgate, Netflix acquired the rights to the sequels, opting for a more limited theatrical run for “Glass Onion.” The streamer’s $450 million deal with Johnson highlights the growing trend of streaming platforms investing heavily in original content. As fans eagerly await the release of “Wake Up Dead Man,” speculation remains about Netflix’s distribution plans for the highly anticipated film.
