“They’re a couple. His name is Phillip (Grant), and I basically came across him thinking who would bring me the most joy pairing with Benoit Blanc: Hugh Grant. He was a pleasure to work with. He came on set one day, we shot this disjointed scene, and he trusted us to put it in the movie.. I also love that she’s baking at home, trying to make sourdough bread. I don’t know if I see it as the Watson in Sherlock de Blanc, but it’s good to have different resources, plus that apartment is so great that I can’t imagine Blanc could afford it, so I think [Phillip] he has a real jobsays Johnson on Empire’s ‘Spoiler Special’ podcast (via Collider).

Rian Johnson makes it very clear that if he managed to get Hugh Grant back for ‘Puñas por el espera 3’, he would feel very lucky. “We’ll see but I also feel that if that happens, It would be later because I also think it is important to establish limits that for me would be marked by the mystery itself.. I mean, this isn’t about the detective, it’s about the story.”says the filmmaker in statements to his own Netflix. “It’s not about diving into who Benoit Blanc is or where he comes from, he can’t be the lead… The movie has to focus on the mystery. I also tell you that if something makes me laugh, I will inevitably do it again at some point..
