A sequel to the 2017 runaway hit A Quiet Place is the works. The original movie film earned over $330 million on a $17 million dollar budget.
John Krasinski wrote and directed the film with starring his wife Emily Blunt. Both stars recently spoke about ideas for the upcoming sequel.
“In some ways, the idea of seeing who these people were before this all happened would be interesting, but I’m not quite sure because I think actually it’s now what’s the next chapter and what happens next,” said Blunt, “I think people feel very invested in this family… I think it’s such an open book right now, and certainly for John who is lasering into something as we speak.”
Krasinski is set to return as the director for the sequel.
“This is a world you can play in, this isn’t just a character to remake… it’s actually a world, which is a whole different, very unique experience. It’s not like Alien or Jaws where the main villain is the thing you’re repeating; it’s an actual entire set of rules and the circumstance that the world has undergone that you can play in very different facets.”
A Quiet Place 2 hits theaters on May 15th, 2020.
