A Quiet Place is set to return with a sequel, and yes, John Krasinski will be involved. No one could have predicted how much the drama would have taken off when it hit screens earlier this year. With an action-packed horror that plays with the emotions and puts family at the forefront of a compelling plot, it was evidently going to be a hit and has now grossed over $328 million worldwide.
And now, just short of three months after its release, A Quiet Place 2 is already in talks. Following the announcement that a sequel to this year’s surprise horror-thriller was in development, producer Andrew Form stated Paramount would be taking its time with the second chapter of the human-survivalist franchise. Form also revealed director and co-writer John Krasinski will indeed be involved with the sequel, although it’s unknown at what capacity Krasinski will be attached.
“Oh [Krasinski is] definitely involved. We’re lucky on this one. I’ve had movies where the studio says to you, ‘Here’s your date. Let’s go!’ and on this one we’re not rushing anything, which is amazing,” Form told Collider. “So we’re gonna take our time, we’re gonna figure out where to go, but there is no rush on it and we’re just starting to talk about it. We’re figuring out what everyone’s involvement’s gonna be and what the actual next movie’s gonna be. The first one is so special to us that we really want to take our time with this and not rush anything.”
He continued, “It’s such a special movie to us, the experience and everything. It’s easy to rush these and we’ve made movies in the past where we’ve rushed them through and we’ve felt it, and we just don’t wanna do it on this one. We really don’t. We really just wanna take our time and as long as it takes, it takes. It has to be the right story, just like the first one. It just has to be.”
A Quiet Place chronicles the story of a family which struggles to survive amid an invasion of blind, sound-hunting monsters. Krasinski shares the writing credits with screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck on the critically-acclaimed film. Krasinski stars opposite real-life wife and actor Emily Blunt in the film, which also features Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds
