This film with a royal cast which was a big hit at the cinema in 2019 with more than 300 million dollars in revenue will have a sequel and it will be broadcast directly on Netflix at the end of 2022.

In April 2021, we learned that Netflix had spent $469 million for the rights to the franchise. At loggerheads. Director Rian Johnson and producer Ram Bergman then hit the jackpot: $100 million each. Just like the main actor of the film, Daniel Craig. While he received “only” 25 million dollars for his last James Bond, Dying can wait, Daniel Craig being offered a colossal sum to shoot two films that will be the sequel to At loggerheads. He will therefore resume his role as private detective, Benoit Blanc.

In the first film, released in 2019, Benoît Blanc was to elucidate the death of Harlan Thrombey, a famous thriller author found dead in his large and beautiful house, on the evening of his 85th birthday. At loggerheads lasted a little over two hours and oscillated between twists, betrayals, and a very British humor that was going to hit the bull’s eye all over the world. The feature film thus brought in more than 300 million dollars in box office revenue (320 million exactly), a real surprise. Just like that of not releasing the two suites in the cinema.

By assigning the rights to the consequences of At loggerheads at Netflix, Rian Johnson, Ram Bergman and therefore Daniel Craig are renouncing a theatrical release. A bet that could be a winner since Netflix has more than 200 million subscribers worldwide and offers a showcase like no other. When we see the successes of Red Notice Where Don’t Look Up lately, we think that this strategy can pay off. Especially since the proposed cast will again be at the top of the range. Variety thus indicates that Ethan Hawke, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, or even Janelle Monáe should be there. What to satisfy those who had appreciated this film equivalent to a giant Cluedo where Chris Evans and Ana de Armas shone in the first film. The American magazine also specifies that the continuation of At loggerheads should be available on Netflix during the fourth quarter of 2022. We will be there.
