What if "Knives Out 3" really is set in Utah?

Rian Johnson is preparing to launch his third star-studded Benoit Blanc caper, according to a new report from Deadline revealing that "Knives Out 3" will begin production this year.

Why it matters (to us): In a solemn and unbreakable vow, Johnson promised — promised — to set the third mystery in Utah!

  • About a year ago, shortly after "Glass Onion" began streaming, Netflix released a promotional video that showed Johnson spinning a globe to let fate decide the setting of the next installment.
  • He happened to stop the Earth's rotation on us!
  • "Congratulations, guys. We're going to Utah!" he proclaimed.

Tell us: What would be a great Utah theme for a hyper-privileged coterie of murder suspects?

  • An elite Sundance party?
  • A group of investment bankers on a canyoneering adventure?
  • The Romney-Huntsman feud brought to (fictional) life?

What's next: Perhaps, dear readers, we should group-write our own hit detective series!
