Published Feb 22, 2019Having channelled his master of the Jim face into a delightfully suspenseful horror flick, John Krasinski will once again step into the director's chair for the sequel to A Quiet Place.
Paramount plans to release the follow-up on May 15, 2020. The news was confirmed via a post on Krasinski's Instagram, which you can view below.
Speaking with Business Insider, Krasinski said that we shouldn't expect a straightforward follow-up to the film:
I don't even see it as a sequel. Emily [Blunt] actually blew my mind by categorizing it the correct way after I pitched it to her. She said, 'This isn't a sequel at all — this is the second book in a series of books. It's a widening of a world.' And I thought that's the best way to look at it. It doesn't feel like a sequel — it's a continuation of living in that world.
I can't wait to get in there and keep writing and see what this movie wants to allow itself to be. And that will happen in the script process and the shooting and the editing. But I think what's cool about the second part of this movie is the same set of rules have to apply. I can't just introduce a world where you can make a ton of sound, and if I did, there would have to be a reason for it. So it's figuring out if there are smart and clever ways to do it.
As of press time, it's unclear who will star in the film.
