American horror film A Quiet Place was released earlier this month and has since become a critical and commercial success. With this in mind, Paramount Pictures’ Jim Gianapolus announced at CinemaCon that A Quiet Place 2 is in the works, although no further details have been revealed.
The film currently holds a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has made a significant profit on its $17 million budget, so although the climax of the movie doesn’t necessitate a follow-up, it makes sense that Paramount are looking to capitalise on its popularity.
Exactly what a sequel to John Krasinski’s directorial debut will look like remains to be seen, but writers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck have expressed an interest in continuing with the franchise. The pair previously stated that they were in the process of writing set pieces for a second film and that there are multiple universes in which the movie could take place, so it’s clear that the idea of making A Quiet Place 2 has been talked about for a while now.
A Quiet Place is currently in cinemas and stars director John Krasinski alongside his real-life partner Emily Blunt. It tells the story of a family who must live in silence in order to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world decimated by monsters.
