[[WMG: Knives Out is Marta's first book, adapted for the big screen]]
Since she legally owns the stories, Marta is now free to give out the movie rights. Out of respect for Harlan, she left his works alone, but decided to write her own stories... starting with the insane series of events that landed her the inheritance in the first place.


* It's a recurring plot arc that [[AmbiguouslyBrown nobody knows Marta's exact ancestry]], and we never see her father.

[[WMG: The sequel will reunite Rian Johnson with some of the cast from ''Film/TheLastJedi'', ''Film/TheBrothersBloom'', ''Film/{{Brick}}'', and ''Film/{{Looper}}'']]
* In a form of AscendedExtra, Creator/JosephGordonLevitt will go from being a voice cameo to playing an actual character in the story.
* Creator/LukasHaas will play a man accused of murder in a CastingGag.

* Creator/JohnBoyega would be a welcome addition as well.

* Confirmed! Rian Johnson has said that Benoit Blanc will return in future films.


* Marta likely wouldn't stand for that, so I expect she'd use her newly acquired wealth to help fund the case against Ransom. The family will likely also testify against Ransom, which means even his own parents wouldn't vouch for him. Plus, Blanc would certainly have some clout, being a famous crime solver. Not to mention Elliott and Wagner. Plus, Ransom wasn't just accused of causing Harlan's death; there's ''nobody'' else to pin Fran's murder on. A slightly less harsh sentence is possible, but "scot free" is a stretch. Plus, that would invalidate so much of the story.

* Marta's most unique trait is that she vomits when speaking deliberate untruths, but we see that she can get around that effect with ExactWords. Now, one of the near-universal rules for Fae is that they CannotTellALie, but can use ExactWords to speak misleading truths. Being partially human might let Marta lie, but her Fae half rebels against it and makes her physically ill.
