Daniel Craig has brushed up his voice to film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and shared that he worked with a trainer to regain the southern accent he used to portray detective Benoit Blanc in the first Play Knives Out.
“Before we started filming, I worked with an accent coach for three or four months,” Craig told Empire magazine in the forthcoming profile, Glass Onion. “I forgot the accent and didn’t want to do pastiche. I wanted to make it as grounded and grounded in reality as possible.”
In the first Knives Out, Blanc’s voice is described by the haughty Ransom Drysdale (played by Chris Evans) as “Kentucky-fried Foghorn Leghorn Drawl” – a far cry from Craig’s own British accent, which he used in his 15 years. year directing the James Bond series.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is set in Greece on the private island of a tech billionaire played by Edward Norton. While Craig’s Blanc was already a fish out of water in Massachusetts in the first film, the detective is likely to be even more of an outsider in the world of European luxury.
In addition to Craig and Norton, the cast also includes Kathryn Hahn, Kate Hudson, Lesle Odom Jr., Janelle Monáe, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Dave Bautista and Ethan Hawke
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is slated to premiere on Netflix on December 23, but the film will have its world premiere much earlier, screening at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September.
